These were out of a moving 16 ft. aluminum boat. Again shooting into the light. We tried circling around them to get light in our favour but they would dive and pop up on opposite side of boat.
Two, I managed to salvage.

I tried to hold the boat steady, since my camera was in use anyways!

Don't rock the boat Kev ;)

Are these a type of Grebe? Very nice shots by the way.

MA, I believe these are Loons.

Thanks MA, and yes they are Common Loons.
If it wasn't for Kev and his nautical skills we could not have gotten these pics. Quite the ships Captain he is.:thumbup:

Beautiful photos! I love loons, their calls are so eerie; I love it.

Loons are so hard to photograph, I can never get good photos. I find it hard to get their eyes in focus. Great work.

Must have driven you Loonie ... nice detail, though .. maybe we should have a "lousy light" contest/challenge one month

I quite like the tonality in this "bad light".

I really like these shots. You have used the bright reflections behind them to isolate them in the frame which is a bit of creative genius IMHO. Nice work

Thank you so much Kevin, Matt, Marko, and Dan. Really appreciate the compliments.
(note for KevHarm: Where are your Golden Eagle shots from that day?????? Lets see'em!)

Nicely done with the difficult lighting conditions you had. As Marko said like the soft tonality in these.
