It was a perfectly calm morning on the lake. The surface was like glass. In our kayaks we headed over to the point with all the logs in the water to see the turtles sunning themselves. However, there were no turtles. In fact, as we paddled toward the south end of the lake, there were no turtles, no birds, no wildlife at all. Continuing along the western shore, finally I spotted a few birds, cedar waxwings and grackles.
I had about decided that this was all I would see today when I spotted something in a pine tree, a bald eagle. It sat on a branch looking out over the water, paying no attention to me. So, I paddled back and forth looking for a good angle to get a photo. Here’s what I got.
Rose also saw a great blue heron in another pine tree, but we didn’t get the shot. So, we’ll have to keep an eye open the that one another day.
