It was a cooling evening after a hot, sunny day. Andy wanted to go fishing. I wanted to bring FLD Gus along because he's never been in Andy's boat and it was about time.
Those weren't the two birds I wanted to hit with my stone again.
We went to Sage Lake because Andy said almost every lakefront cottage has a big sign that shouts, LOON LAWS IN EFFECT, and I wanted to play with my new 200-500mm lens.
|"Captain" Andy waves good luck!|
Luckily, we didn't find loons until we'd been on the water for a while and FLD Gus settled down.
|"Captain" Gus just wants to get into the water!|
The fishing report?
No luck on Andy's end; he graciously gave it up to maneuver the boat for my more successful photo-capture.
|One beautiful loon.|
|The loon turns to look right at us. FLD Gus was not interested in him...|
|...or these adolescent loons, who weren't too sure about Gus!|
|This group of 3 loons looked like Loch Ness sea-monsters.|
|The 3 loons grouped together when we cruised closer. Having a meeting? I wanted to ask.|
|One by one they ungracefully flopped across the surface of the water and flew away.|
Thanks, Andy, for a marvelous evening!
