Default Mother Common Loon feeding Fledgling

In Maine there is a family of common loons that we have seen this summer. Yesterday I was able to watch and capture as the mother loon caught fish and holding them in it's mouth fed them to the fledgling. It was a very special thing to watch and I hope you enjoy this sequence. Taken with Olympus OM-D EM-1 and Olympus 70-300mm

Very nice series! The loons are hard to photograph and to get a good picture.
