One of my goals was to photograph baby Loons and I was able to get a few the other evening.























and finally, the last one.

Great shots. Really like the sharpness, color saturation and framing. I heard that the momma loons fly off with the babies sitting on their backs? Have you ever seen that? That would be an amazing shot!

Thanks guys! I have a boat and I get as low as possible to the water/eye level... I wish I could get lower yet to be honest. I was using my 300mm F/2.8 w/a 1.4x TC. Appreciate your feedback.
