Cute as a Loon

Yesterday’s post offered well wishes to the juvenile bald eagle I photographed last week as evidence suggests it may now be on its own.  There is still some bird bonding happening on the lake, however.  I spent a fair amount of time photographing a loon and her two chicks – one of which was about as cute as they come.

This little one seemed to like the kayak and kept getting me into trouble with Mama Loon when it would wander to close to the scary “photographer thing”. 

Doesn’t appear to be too afraid of me though, does it?

In fact, I started to think it was showing off to its new “friend”.

Yeah, you’re cute…

… but I don’t have any fish.  I’d surely give you one if I did.

Alright! Alright! I’ll go find some minnows or something. You win! You win! Smile

This is awesome and that young loon is definitely more adventurous than the other one. Not afraid of my kayak or boat either! Lovely, lovely pictures Ken!

Thank you for the kind comments, Lori. I could spend days out there following these little ones around :).
