The weather up this way is starting to warm up, and the migrants will be showing up soon (I sure hope they don't just stay down south). I've not been out shooting lately, so I am pulling a few from my micro-vault. The images below were all taken last summer at a lake north of the city. All were shot from a kayak, hand held (no room for a tripod) with my 7D and 400mm lens.

1. Backlit Loon #1 - I like the stars that show in the wake.





2. Backlit Loon #2 - Calling Out





3. Expert Diver - Loons take on a different appearance when they want to take on a lower profile. Feathers are flattened to decrease boyency, and they look quite skinny.






Thank you for having a look. C&C is most welcome.

Ken

Love seeing loons. Neat info on #3 - I didn't know that. Cool how green the water looks and great light too!

Now that last image is super sweet Ken!

I would be tickled to be paddling with Loons some time...................the birds that is
Maybe a bit more work with the backlit comps could strengthen them more ............

Very nice, Ken. I love the low loon; the horizontal and vertical lines work well together, and the head looks like a periscope!

Sweet set Kenny, #3 for me. I like the low perspective on him.

Many thanks for commenting Karl. Paddling with loons (not the birds) can be an experience too. An alternate perspective on life is always welcome.

Thanks for the comments Greg. The low loon was a toss in, but people seem to like it. Good to get the perspective of others.
