    Here are some more images I just finished editing.

    This lake has areas covered with lillys and also has dead trees sticking up out of the water.

    This Heron is standing on top of a small stump where he was fishing from. I finally made him so nervous he flew off but I caught up with him later further up the lake. (2nd image)

    When I caught up with him he remembered my presents and flew away again.

    This Eagle was flying down the lake fishing when he got too close to a nesting Crackle. She took out after him to chase him away. He made one circle back around (4th image) and then disappeared.

    Looks like it was worthwhile to bring the camera in the kayak. ;)

    #1 is my favorite, but it needs a wee bit of straightening:)

    Very nice! I would think it’s tough to follow birds in flight while in the kayak. I’ve never been brave enough to take mine.

    Thank you! As for photographing from a kayak, merely think about all the times you have been in a kayak just for fun and how many times you almost tipped over but didn't. Now if you went out on a "serious" excursion in a kayak and kept a "very keen sense of balance" about you at all times then you shouldn't have any problems. I have to admit that the first few times I went I was anxious. As far as holding a subject steady in the view finder, it takes a little practice and always a very fast shutter speed.

    Nice pics! Once again you've inspired me to take my camera out on my kayak. You're probably right but just for insurance purposes I think I'll put everything in my waterproof dry bag until I'm ready to start snapping. I'm hoping to capture some dolphins hunting or maybe a hammerhead. Would make for a cool pic!
