Male common loon yodeling at fly over
« on: June 11, 2019, 21:48:38 »
This male common loon was captured on the same lake as my previous post.  Cold, foggy morning.  A loon flew over the lake, and as usual the resident male let them know that they weren't welcome on his lake.

D4. 600VR. f/4.5. ISO 800. 1/1250 sec

Advice and comments always appreciated

Cheers

Randy

Fog is so helpful to photographers — and you captured another fabulous reflection as well.

Thanks everyone for your comments.

Yes, I do love the loons.  They can be magical at times.
