(Apr 2) A view of the Wekiva River on the west side of Sanford, Florida near Orlando. Taken from my kayak.
If you look, there are two paths you can take from this view up the river. To the right or to the left around the small island through all the lily pads, cat tails and other stuff that grows in the Florida waters.
The bird is watching over the river and the nest. Perhaps looking down at the water for prey.
Shot this with 200mm that I borrowed via my grandfather that is his old canon lens for his film decades old camera. The auto focus is lack luster and it only semi talks with my dslr. Time to upgrade to new lens perhaps. Manual focus from kayak=garbage.
