I love loons. I really love to get photos of them wing flapping and stretching. Recently I decided to try using my smaller Canon 70-200mm L series lens with a Canon 1.4x extender instead of my very heavy Canon 400mm L series lens. The zoom would allow me more freedom. Very early on a beautiful bright clear blue sky, calm day I went out to see how it would work, This is on of those photos.
I shoot out of a very small raft. I had been working with this loon a lot and it is very used to me and my raft. Often it would come in very close and I would have to back paddle away.
