I saw a beaver dam and mr and mrs beaver (how anthropomorphic of me) and a heron and lots of little tunnel - trails that some animals must be taking at night. It is tough to paddle and take pictures at the same time. By the time I see something I want to photograph - it's past me and I am pulling out the camera from the dry bag and paddling back, trying like hell to be quiet and not scare the animal.
I saw a leaf in the water that looked like stained glass, it was so beautiful. I tried to take a picture in the water but it didn't work out so I struggled to get along side this little leaf to pick it up. I finally got it and here is a picture, but it was much more beautiful in the water, floating just below the surface.
