Here's a few shots I grabbed while paddling a large slough complex. Nothing too exciting happening right now but there are the usual suspects like the yellow headed blackbirds and tern. And, added kayak sunset image with D300 and 20/2.8. Others D300 and 300/4 w/TC, hand held.
Thank you, Izzie! The tern in image 3 is really moving as it was fairly windy. Also, I got an interesting shot of one with a small sunfish speared on it's dagger-like beak. Unfortunately, it was a bit small in the frame and not razor sharp. Next time!
Wow, nice set, Mark! The second Yellowhead is my favorite, but I have to give a large shout-out to both the Muskrat shot, and the sunset shot! I love how sharp the whiskers are on the muskrat. I am so tempted to get a kayak for photography; I live near a lake that has four large man-made wetlands on one end, and also near the Missouri river. I must say that the front of your kayak looks more like a canoe; what type of kayak do you have? Thank you for sharing!
Mark very nice, we get one male yellowhead blackbird for 5 days every year at our feeder with redwings then he disappears not to be seen again, so I envy your exposure to them their call is also neat - great capture of the other inhabitants especially the Forster's tern which actually wanders around my area on the ocean, from time to time thanks for sharing Michael
