Taken in Michigan's Eastern Upper Peninsula.  A baby loon was near my neighbor's dock, so I went out to the end to photograph it.  An adult surfaced and performed this display.  

Canon EOS 1D Mark 2 + 600mm f4 IS lens

Great display – the pose and splashing water bring this to life. The space at the top could possibly be used commercially or editorially.
