Water lilies clog the lake in most places. It made paddling challenging at times. We had to look for weak links to push our way through.
This little green heron was enjoying the morning air. These birds are said to drop crusts of bread, worms, twigs, feathers and other objects onto the water as lures to entice fish to come to them.
An osprey was nesting high above the lake.
We also saw a rail, but I was not fast enough with my camera.
