Catchin' a ride....

Took  a boat ride out at camp yesterday, to see the new family of our 'resident Common Loon'..wasn't disappointed, this little guy enjoyed the view from mom's back for a bit!! was cute to see!!


  1. I so love Loons! I have been trying to get some up close shots for years but haven't yet. Really enjoyed these.They are so cute.

  2. Stunning images of the Loons! Are the males and females colored the same? I'd be curious to know that.

  3. I've never seen loons; quite a sweet shot of the baby on mama's back!

  4. Thanks everyone!
    Lorac, I usually manage to get a few shots each year, we were in our boat for these, which really helped get close enough and with my zoom lens too.
    Mona, they are very hard to tell apart, usually have to be side by side and the male will be larger, coloring is very similar.
    Mama, we had never seen this before either, what a treat for me to catch these shots!!

  5. Wonderful shots!! It doesn't get much better than that. Loved the daisy shot in your last post too.
