Today I invite you to my birdblog. A lot of waters in here. Yesterday I was paddling for the first time this year. But it was cold so I was out just about 45 min. In that time I was able to capture this pair of crested Grebe.

  1. Great photos of the Grebes and so good that you were out on your kayak. However, it sounds a bit too cold to me! I like it warm enough to swim as well!

  10. You've added in the photo of the red kayak. Bright red and fierce. Looks like it can endure the strong water currents. Hope you enjoyed your first kayak trip. :-)
