Loon Baby with Fish

Loon Baby with Fish, originally uploaded by Michael A. Nelson.

Here is another shot I captured on the same boating trip I described in my last blog entry. At first I didn't realize there was a small fish in the loon's mouth. I cropped the photograph slightly so now you can see the minnow quite clearly. Again, the light is quite good. My poor brother who forgot his camera :-(

Common Loon and Baby

Common Loon and Baby-1, originally uploaded by Michael A. Nelson.

We are now moving away from India to Northern Ontario in Canada where this Mother has just fed her baby loon. My brother Tim was taking me for a boat ride but he forgot his camera however I did have mine. We stayed with this pair for about thirty minutes and I got a lot of great photographs. This is one of my favorites. The picture was taken on Deer Lake.
