Just a heads up for those of you who might be watching.

If I get a chance this afternoon when the loons are well away from the nest, I may try to go down and wipe what appears to be a spider web off the front of the camera.  It will probably be the last time I have a chance to do it.

If I am able to do it, it probably won't last more than a few seconds.

But I just wanted to give you fair warning in case you see a hand appear in front of the lens.

It is an absolutely beautiful sunny day here in Minnesota.  Just a very light breeze and temperature of 76 degrees.

And better yet, it has also been a much more peaceful day for the loons.  They just visited the nest a few minutes ago although they did not get up on the nest.
