In this final part of the “Kayaking the Myakka River” series, I’m featuring several species of wading birds that I captured while kayaking the Myakka River. These images show why I love taking the kayak out for some bird photography … you can get close, as well as down to “the birds’ level”. Enjoy these kayak images:
Following the capture of these images, I packed up and headed south to Venice, Florida, where I visited the wonderful bird rookery (aka, nesting sites) for a couple of days of exciting bird photography. Lots of neat bird images coming up!
