A beautiful morning on the lake in the kayak. No wind, bright sunshine, cool temperatures, and even the jet skis were being polite. I didn’t see many turtles today, but I made up for that with the variety of birds. I hope you enjoy the photos.
This little guy kept flitting out in front me.
I’ve seen the kingfishers before, but none had sat still long enough for me to get a decent shot. This guy had his breakfast.
This heron is likely the same one I saw last week and was in the same place. Perhaps near a nest?
Here was the surprise of the morning, an osprey. I wasn’t sure what it was until getting home and looking it up.
There was also a pair of eagles, both a mature one and a young one. The mature one flew up and headed straight away from me, so not the best shot, but young one posed in a tree.
Not a bird, but saw these deer across the lake.
All together a great day on the lake. I hope your day has been a good one, too.
