The Common Loon is a protected species on the Twin Lakes in Inchelium, Washigton (N.E. Washington state). There are only a few nesting on both lakes and can be seen swimming and fishing near the marshes. I've been trying all summer to capture shots of the few loons on the lakes, tonight I was lucky enough to catch the male (front) and female together in the frame.
Nearly a dozen or more bald eagles have converged at the Swinonmish channel feasting on small fish moving up the channel. The sight is truly amazing and an great photo opportunity.

Daily Shoot #260 - Beauty is all around us. Make a photo of some naturally occurring beauty in your area today. The Common Loon is a protected species on the Twin Lakes in Inchelium, Washigton (N.E. Washington state). There are only a few nesting on both lakes and can be seen swimming and fishing near the marshes. The loon like all divers, is a specialist fish-eater, catching its prey underwater, diving as deep as 200 feet (60 m). I've been chasing loons around the lakes all summer hoping for a decent picture. While I don't know that this qualifies, it was one of the rare times I saw the loons flapping their wings and I was lucky enough to get this shot.
The Common Loon is a protected species on the Twin Lakes in Inchelium, Washigton (N.E. Washington state). There are only a few nesting on both lakes and can be seen swimming and fishing near the marshes. I was luccky enough this day to see two adult loons with 2 juvenile loon. They weren't interested in posing for a complete family photo, but they did let me get this.
This is one of several young bald eagles I saw at North Twin Lake this 4th of July week. From the markings and my internet research I’m guessing this eagle, and the other 4 I saw, are in their third year. The crown is not fully white, the tail has little white. By next year these birds should be sporting their full adult and iconic look.

Apparently the abandoned buildig I found during the typical shutterbug photowalk was not so abandoned after all. (I'm not a wild rodent expert so I'm only guessing these are gophers. I believe they are too small to be groundhogs)
