Loon books still available

Hello everyone,

This morning I spotted two loons flying over my house heading towards Tacoma Lakes, I think they were letting me know to get my kayak out this weekend and meet them at the lake. I cannot not wait to be out at camp once again. Its been a long winter and I miss my time spent kayaking in the early mornings and watching the area loons interact with each other.

This year will make 4 years that I have spent photographing the loons at Tacoma Lakes region and 3 years since I first published my book "Loons of Tacoma Lakes " - A book celebrating the love of loons. It has truly been a humbling experience to be allowed such an up close and personal look into their daily lives. And in the summer of 2008 I was able to capture the same breeding pair that I had photographed in my book with there newly hatched chicks and those photographs were amazing. For those of you who would like to view some of the new photographs captured since I first published my book click on this link here you will find some wonderful photography of Tacoma's loons in Litchfield, Maine. And for those of you who would like to purchase a copy of my book, below is a list of the retailers who currently have a copy for sale.
