I finally got the nerve up to take my camera out with me on the kayak. A few days ago I bought a water-proof bag large enough to put it and the 500mm lens into, and this morning I packed everything up and headed for the lake. I’ve been exploring the south end of the lake for the past week or so and had seen quite a few Great Blue Herons, Cattle Egrets, Great Egrets, and even a American White Pelican in hunting in the cattails and weeds there. Earlier this week I found the mouth of the Canadian River and had gone up stream until my kayak was bottoming out in the mud.
So with camera-in-a-bag on board and a cheapie GoPro knock off strapped to my head I launched the kayak and headed south and took some pictures and videos. Didn’t drown, didn’t even get a spot of water on the camera, and even though I missed a few shots because it takes a little longer to get the camera out of the bag than it does to just lift, aim, and shoot, I got a few nice pictures. Enjoy.
A video of some Forster’s Terns slowed to 1/2 speed so you can see the terns. Sorry that my hat brim keeps getting in the way. I was paddling into a rather stiff wind.
