Spring Loons & Grebes



I might have had new collection of songbird images today, but I forgot to remove my camera battery from its charger this morning and left home without it. Instead, after lunch and a nap, I went to the pier at the end of Lake Street near Captain Bill's to photograph loons and grebes on Lake Mendota. I was hoping to get a decent shot of an Eared Grebe that was reported by Rick Terrien, but the bird didn't come close enough for close-up portraits. Still, I'm content with the images I was able to get today. Watching Common Loons is always entertaining and they make excellent photographic subjects.
