 Loons at Cherry Grove. 

Well, not really.  That's a Neotropic Cormorant, I think.  Here's one that I photographed recently.

Juvenile Northern Rough-winged Swallow, catching its breath.  I was pretty astonished by this bird, I was standing at an overlook above a small lake when the bird landed just a few feet away from me on the fence railing.  It was plainly very out of breath and it sat there for a couple of minutes while it got its breathing under control.  My guess is that it is newly fledged and that it is just learning the ropes of being a swallow.

Canon 5Diii, 400DO, ISO 320, f6.3 @ 1/800, aperture preferred setting.

Just discovered this forum today.  And, I thought I was the only one who loved photographing dragonflies!
