Default Loon w/flounder

Watched this guy float by the house trying to figure out what to with his catch of a Starry Flounder that didn't fit in his mouth. He disappeard around the downstream bend still pecking away at it and don't know the outcome. He came back upstream and repeated catching one and going downstream.

Maybe he's got a friend downstream that helps with the picking and eating process? I dunno, except I like both your shots and story of behavior.
