Birds

Loons – Each year David travels to Canada to fish and spend time with family and close friends. During the beautiful crisp Canadian mornings David ventures out at dawn and sets up his tripod on the front of his small fishing boat and motors to one of many secluded coves on Big Gull Lake to spot loons. Once David spots one of these beautiful creatures he slowly approaches using the boats electric trolling motor. The birds get fairly used to him over the time it takes to painstakingly approach at a very slow speed. After some initial wariness they allow David to get close and even become more curious about his presence providing wonderful photographic opportunities flapping their wings, swimming under the boat and giving David many different looks. Photographing loons has become one of his favorite past times on these fishing trips.
