Kayak photography allows the photographer to obtain images that were never thought possible. It is an unobtrusive way to observe wildlife and their behaviours. Most important you don't need to spend thousands of dollars on a super telephoto lens to achieve quality images. This Fall I have been visiting Point Pelee National Park and Kayaking in the marsh to photograph shorebirds. I find the best time to go is in the evening because the shorebirds are landing in the marsh to roost for the night and also the lighting is ideal for photography. The mudflats in which the marsh provides is a great place to start looking for these birds. I use a Canon 300mm F/4 IS lens to do most of my kayak photography. The majority of the birds I have encountered are very cooperative and allow for many great photo opportunities. Here are some of my photographs I have taken this year while kayaking.
