We finally got Margene out on the kayaks yesterday. We had a muddy start - the lake level has dropped several feet since last weekend, and instead of getting started in the sand, we started off in the muddy silt. Margene almost lost a shoe before we got started.
I did manage to catch a photo of a cormorant on the buoy this time - I've tried before, but they flew off before I could get my camera out of the waterproof bag. This guy was a little braver (or slower....)
And of the heron....cropping makes such a difference. Here's two crops of the same picture.
One seems to emphasize the bird, and the other the background
We had a couple of ducks out with us too.
Margene is now talking about getting a kayak too.....
