If you ever want someone to stop taking pictures of wildlife, you'll have to invent critter proof lenses. (or wait for your fellow humans to wipe out wildlife..) Let's face it, if you've got a camera in your hands and you're anywhere where there's animal activity, you have to get out the camera. You have no option. You're hooked for the day!! Sounds bad I know, but really, there are worse drugs out there!
This time of year, the lakes are the domain of the fisher people and the rivers are a risky proposition as well. I'll tell you one thing though, every year when I see the Bald Eagles gathering on the Wisconsin river I feel an urge to hop in my kayak and paddle out for a visit. Thing is, that would be a bad idea.
