Loon flapping wings

I took this last week. I would like to get a really good shot of a loon flapping its wings but this is the best I got. I wish the head was a bit towards me.
The contrast seems a bit high. It did not seem that way when I processed it a few days ago. One of my battles - a consistent look. :smile:

Thanks for the comments. I appreciate them.

Bobby, I did think of cloning out the weeds but decided to leave them in as the source of reflections in the water. What do others think?

Love this Allan. I like the position of the wings and don't mind the weeds at the top. You managed to get awesome detail in the whites as well. I'm staying at a cabin on Green Lake in Maine for 2 weeks right now and I am waiting for a calm day so I can go find some loons with the kayak.

Terrific shot Allan. You didn't by chance happen to take this at Lake Francis State Park up in northern NH did you? I ask because my fiancee and I went camping/kayaking there last weekend, and we bumped in to a couple on the water Saturday morning that were from Nashua.

Thanks.

Rich, I hope you found loons and even chicks.

Gary, I live in southern NH and tend to stay in that area. I don't even know where the park you mentioned is located. Did you bump into any loons?
