Adventures At Martin Meadow Pond, NH (loons)

I heard there was a pair of osprey nesting near or on Martin Meadow Pond, which is located in nearby Lancaster, NH.  We decided to take our little boat, “The Black Pearl Too”, out for a voyage of exploration (aka: fishing, drifting lazily along in the sunshine and taking photographs of birds and wildlife we might see.  To my great delight, a pair of loons popped up out of the water next to our boat and joined us in a fishing foray.

For the uninitiated, trying to get a clear photo of swimming birds while in a boat that’s constantly bobbing up and down is like trying not to spill a glass of water while riding a bike on a gravel road.  We won’t even talk about the osprey, which did put in an appearance and gave us quite a show of catching a large trout (show off!!) and flying off with it’s meal.  At this point I made a “note to self”…make sure you have a fully charged battery in your camera BEFORE you go out to take photos.  Sigh…. lesson learned!

    Oh, that would be worse! Guess these things only have to happen once though and you never forget again.
