As we wait for spring,I want to share with you some of our Common Loon pictures.
Each year these birds stop at the lake just west of town.
Sometimes only one or two show up,but on at least one year we had 14.
What a treat to watch these beautiful birds go about their regular activities.
I remember well the day I got this picture.
I did not have a long telephoto lens or even a very good camera at the time.
Jake slowly walked around,while I sat at one place and waited.
The Loons came swimming within camera range for me,as I happily fired away.
How I wish that I had had the camera equipment I have now.
This picture,as well as all the others,has been cropped to bring the bird closer.
The red eye shows up well here.
This was another one of those magical moments.
Again,the quality is not really good,but considering the equipment I had,I am happy with it.This activity,along with the call of the Loon sent shivers up my spine.
One more picture of this beautiful bird.
Hopefully this spring Jake and I can again sit at the shore of the lake and enjoy the Common Loon.If this happens there will surely be more pictures to share.
