I doubt this will get an ID. It was just the tiniest spider I've ever photographed. Its about 1mm in size. I was using my extreme macro setup and found this guy tucked away inside some flower petals.

I saw one of these last week that had to have the ID confirmed here. I went back yesterday and saw about 6 or 7 of these up and down the shoreline. A woman who lives on the shore where I stood told me this is the first year she's ever seen these that she can remember.

Only the second time I've seen a Loon here. Saw one in the distance a year or two ago. This time I got nice and close to one. I followed him up and down the river for a few hours. It was very nice to see such a beautiful bird like this here.

While watching the Red-Necked Grebes diving around this litte diving duck passed through. It was smaller than the Red-Necks, would not stay underwater as long as the Red-Necks either. I thought maybe its a Horned Grebe but the color of the neck doesn't quite match?

This might not be good enough to make a positive ID. It was swimming with the pair of Buffleheads I was watching. It would dive down for a while and come back. Common Merganser?

This was out in the middle of the river so it was hard to get a sharp image. I took advantage when it flapped its wings. Correct me if I'm wrong but I believe its a juvenile Common Merganser?
