07 August 2017: Loon Family Update

DSC_4713The baby loon is growing quickly. It is diving now. It’s stomach feathers are white. Pretty soon we’ll see it flapping across the water, exercising it’s wings in preparation for flying this fall. I’ve gotten quite close to it a few times when I was out fishing, but I didn’t have my camera with me. I shot this picture as the youngster and a parent swam past my shoreline the other day.
