Another Visit With The Loons
On September 4, 2022 - Loons, Wildlife Photography
This morning provided better weather for visiting the loons than Friday. I headed out before dawn to see what they were up to. The chicks were ten weeks old this weekend. They’re mostly foraging for themselves now, they can make prolonged dives. But they’re still happy to have their parents rustle up a meal for them.
So appreciative of the quality of your photography, and of your interpretive narrative. Thank you so much for sharing, and enriching our lives.
I so enjoy your photography of the loons! Thanks for sharing!
Sometimes when I’ve seen the foot wave, it seemed like it was a form of distraction. Looking possibly wounded to distract from nest or young ones? Just a thought.
As always, LOVE the pics of the Fam!!
I’ve noticed that they seem to do it more frequently when they’re circle dancing with competitors. Also after waking up or preening. But, I haven’t seen any consistent pattern. Guess I’ll have to keep watching.
[…] UPDATE: I was able to get back out to visit this family again Sunday morning, and the weather was more cooperative. More pix at: Another Visit With The Loons. […]
Your pictures brought light to a cloudy day. What gorgeous pictures. Things we would probably never see with the naked eye….
LOVE LOVE LOVE your photos…so look forward to seeing them. And the educational comment is appreciated.
Wonderful up close photo documentary.
Would you consider a presentation on steam locomotives for the Haverhill Historical Society next summer?
