Outdoor activities often require sunscreen. Here's an interesting evaluation of products:

This was especially relevant to me since I just got back from 10 days snorkeling and diving on Grand Cayman where I was applying sunscreen multiple times a day.

Nature Paddle on Pike Lake

There were quite a few muskrats around. This fellow actually sat still long enough for me to get a decent picture.

Catching this guy on the move was a little tricky. Most of my shots were out of focus, but this one came out quite well.

Lots of red-winged blackbirds around too.

The water lilies were just starting to flower.

It was a beautiful calm morning.

These shots were all with the Canon S3. I love the 12x zoom and image stabilization for this kind of nature photography.
