Photos From the Kayak

With warm weather paddling coming to a close, I'm rigging up for kayak outings that won't allow for shorts and a T-shirt. I'll continue going out until ice on the water says no. Some shots from this summer...

Juvenile Bald Eagles don't get white heads and tails until 4-5 years old. They show a varying degree of white on their dark brown plumage until then.

I got one shot of this Great Egret before it disappeared behind a tree line. Given those circumstances, I was shocked I got this lucky.

Just taking off, this Great Blue Heron hasn't had time to crook its neck into the S-curve it stays in during flight.

This is what a Wood Duck looks like when the two of you round a bend and run into one another at 15 yards.
