Subsequent to having it's head under water searching for food this loon briefly lifted it's head before diving. The beading water on it's head reflect the waterproofing it's feathers provide.  I found it interesting that the water beaded in such an orderly pattern.

Striking viewpoint and head on view.  First thing I noticed was the beading on the head Warren.  (whilst reading your commentary :) ).  Large view shows that off really well.  Nice one!

This is really interesting, great perspective to see how the water beads in such a pattern. I wonder if it's following feather tracts.

I agree, and a very sensible suggestion - it certainly looks that way.

Great head on shot. I like the eyes and water droplets on the head.
