Default Looney for Loons

I've been blessed with cousins that have a house on a big lake in Maine!!! For the last couple years I've been able to take time to visit and go out and try to capture some loons from their boat. Lot's of times out in very rough water. but, it's fun and i love it!! And as usual, i want to say there are so many fantastic pictures on this forum that it's just great to view them!!

5. Mommy feeding chicklets. She would dive and catch a fish, feed one of the chicks. then, she would dive again and eat the fish and then alternate between the chicks and herself.
