Can a color of a boat (bright) impede nature photography : LUSENET : Nature Photography Discussion Page : One Thread

I'm going to purchase a Kayak so that I can conduct nature photography in back waters.

QUESTION: Can the color of the boat impede my ability to film wildlife? In other words, would wildlife easily see a bright color and take off before I could get close enough to film them.

A bright color, like yellow, is easier to see by other boaters so it should be safer than a dark color but would it be easier for wildlife to spot thereby making them harder to film.

Thanks for your opinions.
