Was able to spend three mornings kayaking last week. Not much in the way of wildlife but I still enjoyed it.

Great shots here! I've been using kayaks for pictures since 2009. I love messing with the cottonmouths and beavers in the spring
and birds in the winter. I got the 100 400ii for the minimum focus distance for snakes lol.

Right now i use an Ascend fs 10 sit in and a old Heritage angler 9.5 foot. I'm constantly painting them in camo to get close.
It's a blast in the spring when it floods the wetlands here forcing the beavers to build another level on the lodge. I put my gopro
in the lodge for baby beaver videos. This spring im gonna get in the water and find the exit hole from the lodges and leave go pro for underwater action.

The beavers will let me sit within 10 feet of them now and the beaver kits will bob around right next to my kayak. I guess they know im a friend. Took
five years for them to let me get close. There's probably 25 lodges in the 1 x 3 mile swamp.
Always an adventure!!

I will usually see over a 100 Cottonmouths if the water is high so you don't touch any logs or trees where you can't see haha. Here's
a huge one from last spring. I also leave a trail cam for video of beaver lodge building at night, its amazing what videos i get of them.
This was taken with a 70d, 100 400 ii. I usually take a 7d2 with a 70 200 2.8 ii and the 70d with the 100 400 ii. This year i will be
brandishing the 5d4 also. Can't wait!

I'd always thought that this would be fun and a goal was to get into good enough shape that I could do it. After seeing your great photos I've decided to find a new goal.

Nice! Floating snakes usually sends everyone fleeing. I love being near those beasties though!

Very best,

Thanks, It could have just been the weather that kept them hidden. They are real easy to see here in the spring until it gets hot.
I've also went out one day and counted 120 of them from the kayak and go back the next day and see five.

I probably have 50,000 cottonmouth pictures but i always stop at each one and take pictures lol.

Very best,

I know, i love it. I can't resist them on land or water. I take my snake grabbers and walk the swamp edge when it floods
just to see them. Pretty much impossible to get anyone to go along.

Go for it! Just take it easy and make short trips until you are comfortable with the boat. The paddling is very good exercise and if you go slow its not bad at all.
You also have the place to yourself with a kayak or canoe, no crowds of photographers taking pictures of the same thing. Just you and the critters.
