I had paddled out to put fresh hay on the loon nesting platform. Loons were yodeling their appreciation for the hay even as I left the platform. Upon returning I decided that my "new" (from 2006) canoe needed to be painted in its natural habitat at Singleton Lake. This is the result with Jim Day Rapids in the background and the large maple to the right. A pileated woodpecker was hammering out its new nest in the dead top of the main stem of the maple.
