Minnesota Loon

Nikon D7000, Nikkor 300mm f2.8, f6.3, ISO 400, 1/2000

I took a quick break while fishing in central Minnesota last week. Every time I go fishing loons seemly circle boat. On this fishing trip I had my camera next to me in the boat hoping for a close encounter with a loon. I thought this would be an easy shoot, but once again I was wrong. Every time I pointed my camera at a loon it would dive down and emerge 100 feet away. I managed to snap off a few quick frames before this once dove under the water.

Hayden Valley, Yellowstone National Park

Nikon D7000, 12mm, f13, ISO 500, 1/125

Since I'm on this black and white kick right now, I thought I should share this photo. Hayden Valley is a place inside the park that I have alway wanted to visit. Due to wild fires in during my first visit to YNP I wasn't able to go. Last fall, I was able to spend some time there. It didn't disappoint! Beautiful landscapes, wildlife, and geothermal area's all over. I highly recommend making a stop next time your in Yellowstone!
