At Sunrise

I have been privileged to follow the development of this chick from the day it started to peck its way out of the egg. Here it is eight days old.
This photo was taken at sunrise from my kayak.

Territorial Display of the Common Loon

The loon family was having a peaceful morning in a quiet bay when another loon decided to land on the lake about fifty meters away. Goodbye peace and quiet. Both parents decided the visitor was too close to their chick. This is the female ‘walking’ on water, creating lots of splash and hopefully chasing the intruder off.

Someday, a real loon!

After the mother loon spread her wings, this little one copied. It was so cute because the wings are so little! I love loons.

Free Ride

Captured this picture just this spring. Baby was just born/hatched!
