Loon Chicks

Loon Chicks

These two images of Loon chicks were taken in early August and are a first for me.  They were taken in the rain, late in the afternoon, so the light was very poor. We paddled out into the middle of a lake in Algonquin Park to take them.  Getting absolutely soaked to take pictures in poor light wasn’t the most fun we’ve ever had, but hopefully next summer will be better, if Deb ever gets into a canoe with me again 🙂  It was still a thrill to have the opportunity to see the chicks up close. Based on their size they would be about two weeks old.
