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”
