Meanwhile, back at Tern Lake

Common loons.  Too close, too much lens, too short a depth of field, and too much bouncing in a kayak.   Ah, well, I'm still learning.

  1. Meanwhile, back at the beautiful and lively and serene Tern Lake ... the bird-life has returned for the summer. That is always so exciting to me when our birds are one again doing 'their thing' all around us. There are even many more birds appearing around my condo. Love it! Smiles, Patti and Cap

  2. Oh My! And here I thought a wigeon was an amphibious airplane. The things I learn here Gullible. Wonderful, looking momma loon, on her nest, right-in-the-eye. What a great Post. It almost looked like the Arctic Terns were dive-bombing YOU. They can be a real threat. Can you imagine migrating from one pole to the other annually. And the Swans. Whewie such magnificence. Joy from myself and Patti .. Cap
