Loon at Four
Common Loon at camp Four Lake in the Chequamegon National Forest. The photo was taken out of my kayak. I like getting that level for filming on the water.
I chad no luck filming Loons this morning but did get this young Hawk to pose. Somehow I bumped the shutter speed dial and the image was very underexposed. I am surprised that i could even salvage it.
Camp Four Mates
A mating pair of Common Loons on Camp Four Lake in the Chequamegon National Forest. I got my kayak out for the first time this evening and they seemed comfortable with me sitting there. I never pressure them while filming but let them come to me.
Loon at Four
Common Loon at CampFour Lake in the CHequamegon National Forest. This is a crop of the original since the bird was too far out for a good image. Post processing made this mage possible. Is that wrong?
This Old House
An old Bluebird house. Not sure if anyone is using it or anyone taking care of it either.
Morgan Falls and creek
The storm a few years ago changed the view a bit. The big dead tree is gone and some of the rocks have moved. Always a good trip there with plenty to photograph.
