Being Loony of course. :) Maybe this one explains it better.

oldnavy170,

You probably are right on the money with the bug dinner. This is a nesting pair that were out fishing. They are not on their nest yet and no animals were harmed during the picture taking.:D

I'm impressed and mad all at the same time... lol. I love these animals, but I'm never get to see them up close like this. I always hear them from the other side of a lake or pond up in the Adk's.... They never seem to be very interested to be around people at all. Great shots!!
