Parker’s NaturePosted: May 15, 2012

By Shawn Parker

Loons are not the easiest birds to get pictures of. I have a 270 mm lens that I use, and I have never gotten a shot worthy of making public. Then I got a 500 mm lens. We (actually Julie) took several hundred pictures of this guy on Garbutts Lake. These pics are far superior to the ones we took off the heron that same day; mind you the heron was about 10 times as far away, and I don’t have a tripod big enough to accommodate the big lens.

Shawn Parker is a Kimberley-based photographer whose work appears in e-KNOW and SNAP East Kootenay
