Jag var ute och paddlade i förrgår. Mitt första möte var den här simmande snoken. Men den gillade visst inte mig för den stack iväg mot land.
I was out kayaking the other day. My first encounter was this Snok. A harmless snake that lieks to take a swim. It did not seem to like the company as it headed for land.

Sedan gick turen till näckrosorna. En av de boende vid sjön har planterat både den vita och röda näckrosen. Ingen av dom är naturligt förekommande i sjön. Men så vackra.
Then I headed for the waterlilies. One of the persons living by the lake has planted both the white and red ones. None of them native to the lake. But so beautiful.

Därefter måste jag vända men väljer andra stranden. Tur var det för där fanns sjöns eleganta skäggdopping. Ser ni noga efter så har den en a en liten nykläckt unge på ryggen.
After the lilies I have to turn back but chooses the other shore. And that was good because I met the beauty of the lake, a family of Great Crested Grebe. If you look closely you find a newly hatched young on the back of the last one.

Sist men inte minst, jo, det är den ju. En Blåbandad jungfruslända gjorde mig sällskap uppe vid Djulö Kvarn och satte sig på kayaken. :)
Last but not least, a Banded Demoiselle  landed on my kayak and rested for a while.

Tillbaka vid kanotbryggorna fanns det lite folk. Jag bad dem ta några bilder och det gjorde de. Så, här är jag i kanoten.
Back to the kayak landing there were some people. I asked them if they wanted to take my pic and they did. So, here I am in my kayak. :)

  1. Vilken härlig och fin paddeltur ni fick. Vilken bra bild det blev på blåbandad jungfruslända. Så nära har jag inte kommit dem, så att dom landar på kajaken.

    Ha en underbar dag

  2. Härliga bilder allihop. Fullträffar må jag säga. Du ser ut att ha haft en verkligt lyckad paddeltur. Inte ofta man ser snokar sola sig mitt ute i vattnet. Doppingar och deras ungar är ju otroligt söta och eleganta.

  3. Wonderful collection of photos and critters. I love the baby grebe on the adults back. And the dragonfly is beautiful.

  5. Speaking of snakes we found one in our yard. The neighbors saw it and they said it is a cobra. Called the snake catcher and he caught it from our garden and it was turned out to be harmless one.

    Like all the pictures and seens like you had a funday kayaking!

  6. Du verkar trivas i ett alldeleles eget Eldorado! Och Snoken bland de gula näckrosorna är ju superb, eftersom jag är lite förtjust i ormar! ...och Ljungen blommar och smågrodorna är färdiga! ... så det var den sommaren!

  7. Not so fond of that first critter, but the Banded Demoiselle is beautiful. I'm afraid if I took my camera out kayaking, it would be waterlogged. Nice series of shots.

  8. Ojojoj, vilka bilder!
    Och din kajak vore väl en katastrof om du miste! Den har ju blivit ett av dina mest nyttjade fotoredskap!

  9. LOVE that banded damoiselle photo. Very cool.

    Last spring I saw my first great crested grebe...but it was molting so was very hard for me to identify. Ha! I finally did, though.

  20. Vackra foton och så nära vissa fotoobjekt man kommer med kanot. Tyst tar man sig fram åh det är härligt med kanot. Jag har haft en men sålde den. Tänk jag ångrar detta. Får nog ta en funderare på att skaffa en igen.

  21. What a treat to see all of your critters and lilies. I have never seen ones like these - they are gorgeous. We just have the plain old white ones with the yellow centers. Beautiful captures and the one of the dragonfly is awesome. Genie

  22. What a wonderful paddle around the lake with so many things to see! We have snakes swimming in our farm dams but they are very poisonous, Yours looks so beautiful among the water lilies. A great shot.
    I love the baby grebe on dad's back and the beautifully coloured damselfly and of course seeing you in your kayak.

  29. What an adventurous kayak ride! The photo of the water snake is fabulous and oh my, I just love the shot of the crested grebes and that little baby riding on the back. Your damsel fly is also a fabulous shot. Nice to see the photographer being photographed too!
