Nearly Wordless Wednesday: Riding the Wave

A red-throated loon in its winter plumage does a little body surfing.

Serenely riding the top of the wave.

What a brave birdie. Excellent picture as always Penny.
Thanks, Ray! I should have posted the one in the middle - when the loon dived through the wave before appearing on the top. The water birds are amazing to watch, although sadly I've also seen them heave themselves up on the beach in exhaustion from fighting the ocean's strength.
