A Common Loon Taking Flight

A Common Loon is seen taking off from a lake. In a way, I see this as Sustainable Travel simply because the loon, while it struggles greatly trying to get into the air and must fight constantly to stay air born, it relies on its own strength and uses nothing to hurt the environment as it goes. Sustainable travel projects would be more connected to natural solutions
