Congratulations to OSP2017 for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 21 votes - View Previous Winners


These are several loon families but only one has two babies. In #12, it was time for the baby to slide off mom's back.

It looks like time well spent! If I can make a small suggestion I prefer a bit more space on top, some of the shots looked a bit crowded (to me). YMMV!

Thanks for showing this nice series,
Bob

Wonderful images, OSP! The loon chicks are adorable and photogenic at the same time. You did well capturing the loon family.

Thank you very much, Joshua! It's actually at least 5 different families - not sure after all the culling. I've only been able to find one family with 2 chicks; all others had just one baby.

Thank you!! I shot with a Canon 100-400 and a 400 DO II with and without a 1.4x extender. I use a crop camera so it gives me another 1.6x. Most shots were at 896mm FF equivalent but sometimes loons surface right next to the boat; you also need to zoom out when they are preening and get out of the water. The extreme close-up shot was at 672mm FF.
