Another look at the lone loon on Woodbury Pond the other day (see previous post). Typically they are seen well out in the middle of the pond whenever we visit. When they do venture closer to shore, typically I have no camera or just a phone. This is the best I can do with the pretty good iPhone Pro Max, hand held.
We journeyed over to the pond this afternoon and was lucky to have a visitor drifting around with no apparent purpose. I suspect this loon wanted to make me mad by presenting a great potential image at the same time catching me with only my iPhone.
On a visit to the Ice pond yesterday, we encountered a frequent visitor, according to my brother, on the far side. This night heron has been hanging around for a while and I was lucky enough to catch it while it was investigating the algae filled pond.
