Little Loon Laughing
As the leaves changed the loons started abandoning our pond and heading to the ocean. These two, parent and child, were the last, lingering into late November. I found I could paddle up wind then drift with them on the breeze and got to watch this chick as he ventured away, then back to check in with “mom”. I was extremely lucky to catch this perfect moment when the little guy ducked around mom to give me a smile!
