Loons at Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge

I attended a high school graduation party in Big Lake yesterday. I was hot but there was cold beer and great food. Since I was already close, I decided to stop by the Sherburne National Wildlife Refuge and drive the wildlife loop after the party.

I saw all kinds of birds but spent the most time with a family of common loons, two adults and two young. They were very close to the road so some of my shots actually cropped out parts of the birds. I was using the D5000 (the d7k is in for repair) with the 500 f4 + 1.4tc.

Here is a slideshow. I highly recommend viewing it on full screen by clicking on the four arrows in a box like formation on the lower right of the preview below.
