Relax to this footage of Maine loons swimming on a lake through a kaleidoscope of fall foliage colors. In Maine, the leaves on a variety of trees turn bright colors each fall. At the same time, loons are visiting different bodies of freshwater to fish before ice forms on the lakes and forces them to hunt in the ocean.
