28 June 2016: Yet Another Loon Video

This summer’s loon nesting episode on Clary Lake has provided unparalleled photographic and video opportunities. Yesterday I posted a video of one of the loons climbing onto their nest. This new video is comprised of 3 short video clips stitched together that I took back on June 23rd and 24th and shows a loon sitting on the nest. Who knew watching a loon breath could be so exciting 🙂

This video taken with a Nikon D3300 DSLR camera attached to the prime focus of a 6″ f/5 Newtonian reflector with 2X Barlow (doubler) which amounts to a telephoto lens with an effective focal length of 1524 mm. The nest was located approximately 380′ away from the camera.
