I'll bet you're looking at these two photos and wondering, "I thought he was going to post photos taken from his kayak all week?" Not all photography from the kayak has to be wildlife. Four years ago the forget me not blossoms were very abundant along the rivers edge. These pictures were taken after paddling into a very narrow cove and these flowers were growing along the side. Luckily Mike had his macro lens with him this day so I borrowed it and hung over the edge of the kayak to take the photographs. This was one of the very few times where I didn't use a tripod, it's very rare for me not to. I had to use a very shallow depth of field to get a faster shutter speed but I think it adds a nice effect, especially in the second photo. The cove was narrow enough that we couldn't turn the kayaks around so we had to back out. That's what I like about kayaking, you can definately get to places you would never reach by a regular boat. The forget me nots haven't been this abundant on the river since these photos were taken, maybe this year.
