Baby Stretch

Friends, this baby loon is about six weeks old and is starting to get his flight feathers on his wings, time to get started on strength training by flapping and flopping about on the surface of the water. He is getting strong enough to fly south when the weather goes south 🙂 as it does in our country.  This baby and his sibling came within ten feet of me while i sat in my vehicle blind quietly, but when another car drove by, they headed out to sea and out of telephoto range.  Just enough time to snap his portrait.  til Tomorrow MJ
