A friend and I went to a little lake just outside of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness to check on the loons that we have been photographing previously. We wanted to see if the babies survived. Between the fish and bald eagles that prey on them, it is pretty difficult for the loon babies to live through the first couple of weeks.
Jasper Lake was very calm and the water lilies were in full bloom. I held the camera over the side of the boat to get a wide-angle photo of one of my favorite little islands.
