THE SILVER RIVER IS FOR THE BIRDS AND PHOTOGRAPHERS
Slowly I have been learning to identify some of our area's wonderful birds. Most of the big-uns are easy now! But those little ones that go peter peter or is it tweeter tweeter.......They won't hold still long enough for me to find, focus, picture and look up in the field guide! Ahhh! So they say you need to learn to bird by ear. After all what is left in life to do? Local to Marion Co. Florida? Join www.marioncountyaudubon.com
For a couple of years now I have gone back to the paddle! My first vessel was a canoe at age 17. Now I have a 9' Kayak. Its like floating around in a big yellow banna peel. I love fishing and taking pictures from this kayak. You definitely have a different perspective. You are so close to the water you feel you have become a part of it. You certainly have to keep a watch out! I can be so quiet and distracted that what ever I startle is only an arm length away. I am not fast enough to get that action picture! So I hope to have lots of exciting memories of these adrenaline producing moments. So far they have all been very enjoyable.
