I hadn’t photographed loons in a few years so this morning I went to the Tacoma Lakes area with my kayak and was not disappointed.
These photos were taken on Woodbury Pond. There’s a lot of boat traffic during the day so these loons allow a close approach, they’re used to motorized watercraft so they’re not bothered at all by a kayak. There were a total of nine and a few times they would dive underwater looking for fish and pop up right next to the kayak. I was on the pond at 5 AM for sunrise so I had the whole lake to myself, the way I like it, just the loons and me.
