    Thank you! A lovely picture! I love the contrast and texture of the chick’s fluffy down against the parent’s smooth feathers.

    Incredibly beautiful photo. Just a reminder the Vermont Department of Natural Resources asks people to stay away from loons especially at this time of year when they have their young.
