Weekly Photo Challenge: Close

Friends, these loon chicks stick close to an adult bird for protection from osprey and snapping turtles.  They are also dependent on the adults for food. Both adult birds take turns babysitting and feeding the chicks and they grow very fast.  But for several weeks they ride piggy-back and enjoy the spring sunshine.  Good thing they are cute and cuddly, not hard to keep them close, til Tomorrow MJ
