Photo of the Week - Loons

Doreen Wyffels of Alexandria took this photo of a mother loon and her baby on Lake Latoka. “It was like she was trying to teach her baby how to catch and eat fish,” she said. “She would hand it to the baby to eat and then purposely drop it into the water for the baby to dive down and get it. After a few times with the baby coming up empty, the mother retrieved the fish again and just handed the meal over to the baby.” If you have a submission for “Photo of the Week,” e-mail it to or drop it off at the newspaper office at 225 7th Avenue East, Alexandria. Remember to include when and where the photo was taken. (Contributed)
