Awesome collection, Geoff.

Hope you don't get any dumb comments saying there is no feather detail in the highlights or shadows.

Thanks Tony

.... as you well know to obtain loon head feather detail requires a full head shot with something like 300 f/2.8II stopped down to f/5.6 and shot on a 5DSR. I could pull down highlights and make the breast look nice and grey and show all sorts of weird details!!

Superb set of images Geoff. All five are fantastic... but 2, 3, and 4 are really special.
Excellent work!

Thanks Eric. Better light helped but there is still some magic to a FF file over the croppers.

Outstanding series of images Geoff. The baby loon flapping is awesome. The quality of your images is superb, amongst the best I have seen anywhere.

And, glad to see that imagemaster has blessed you with another uplifting comment.

3 and 4 are just superb indeed. And #1 is a great balance between the whites and the blacks; always a challenge with loon shots and there is always some trade off. I'm coming your way next year for loon shots!!!
