This and That...

First thing...

I do have food coming, reviews, n wot not.
But its summer and I'm on the lake every chance I get.
Looning. I know its not a word.
In the summer food gets put to the side
while I chase the parent loons and their babies, gently chase.
Okay I stalk them. Let's be honest. I'm a respectful stalker of loons.


I'm updating my website frequently.

ONE TREE PAST THE FENCE

you'll find the latest pictures over there.

I can't tell you how thrilled I am.
I have been photographically following these birds for
four years now. I hadn't expected or rather tried very hard
to find the nest, but I did. I found it.

Last night I checked it and they were already gone.
Lo and behold while fishing with Ryan and Hannah
I spotted two loons in the distance. I had a feeling.
Sure enough, there they were, with two babies.

I had fifteen minutes to grab 200- 300 shots.
I never want to stress the birds. The mother and father
showed no displays of upset. None. We ran along side
them for a few minutes...I got what I got and I think I got
some good stuff. I'm always left so grateful and humbled...
these loons have been a saving grace for me and take me
away from a world that can be challenging. 15 minutes.
That's all this girl needs.

So you foodies have lost me for a few more days to
these magnificent birds.
