On the recommendation of one of our new camera club members, I went down to Brisco slough, just off the highway, past the lumber yard, beside the railway tracks, to see if I could photograph a family of loons.
As luck would have it, I found the loons within minutes of arriving, at about 6.15am: Dad, mum and two chicks.
But things didn't go all my way. The birds wouldn't come close enough to get really good sharp photo's (even with my 200mm with a 2x converter), but I still had a blast practicing my wildlife photography!
Here are three of the best from the day (click on the pics to see larger versions):
