[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hopefully this little loon learns his lesson well. Of the six nesting pairs I know of, he is the only surviving chick.

I have trouble photographing loons because their heads are blacker than black and their markings are pure white. If someone has a suggestion for camera settings I'd like to know.

I have tried the only enhancement techniques I know (Levels, Curves, Unsharp Mask) but didn't get a satisfactory result. So here is the photo as it came from the camera.

Fantastic capture. There is not so much loons on TN. With fish and chick, it is very first class.
(obviously, rotating a little your camera to the left would have been better)
No tips for settings. I encounter this same difficulty myself too.
