Fun Friday: Looking For a Meal

A couple of days ago, I decided to take Rubber Ducky (my kayak) out for a sunrise paddle at a nearby Missouri Conservation Department waterway.  It was a wonderful morning … nice and cool, very little wind, a gorgeous sunrise, and a host of hospitable creatures. One of the colorful inhabitants I found was a Prothonotary Warbler that was busy poking around an active beaver lodge, looking for an insect snack:

I always love finding warblers as I kayak the waterways. Being in such a low-profile watercraft, it is very easy to get close to many of these lovely birds. More kayaking images coming up, as well as a few more from “the Gorge”.

Photographic Equipment Used:

  • Canon 7D Mark II body
  • Canon 100-400mm, f/4.5-f/5.6 IS lens
  • Handheld from the kayak, with IS “On”
  • ISO 1600
  • Aperture f/5.6
  • Shutter 1/320 sec. and 1/400 sec.
