sweet shots tom. can't wait to see more shots of the chicks growing up. i've read somewhere that the babies can actually ride the parents back as the parent flies? that can't be true right?

The chicks have a hard time just staying on when the parents are swimming, so I would expect it would be impossible for them to stay on while flying.

Right now at two days the chick is trying to catch fish it can see by looking under water, but it is too buoyant and can only dive about six inches under water.

I really enjoy watching the Loons on the lake and will see what I can do about more photos as the chick gets larger.
