Loon Togetherness

My favorite part about this Loon family is their togetherness. When the mom and dad Loon were fishing, the babies stayed snuggled together. When the babies were practicing fishing - mom and dad were close to each other keeping a watchful eye on their chicks.

Don't you love birds that share parenting responsibilities? Great shots.

Your whole loon series was amazing to see! I can't imagine how it felt to witness their interaction!

Shellmo said...

KJ - actually I cropped that photo - but would like to get a little closer without upsetting them of course!

Hannibal - it definitely feels like I'm witnessing a miracle of nature!
