It was a cold, wet day for a wetlands tour in south Surrey, BC, today.
Shot this mallard couple in flight during the tour
Lovely sky on the Sea to Sky.
Two versions shot a few minutes apart. One mostly grey, another with more blue.
I have a DLINK DIR-880L 8-port wired/wireless LAN router. The only issue I’ve had with it is that some WiFi devices will not connect unless I reboot the router. I put up with this for some time before it occurred to me to check the firmware.
Well, sure ’nuff, when I logged in to the router today, there was an update available. In fact my router was running 1.01 and the latest version is 1.05.
I have upgraded to the latest firmware, and will see if it performs better.
I’ve posted before about upgrading firmware in cameras, and I need to remember that all sorts of other devices have firmware that can be upgraded, too.
I spent a couple of hours shooting at Deer Lake Park in Burnaby, BC, this afternoon. I saw this cormorant, and it sat on this log for over an hour as I walked here and there, returning to it several times to capture it in changing light.
There were lovely clouds again on our walk this morning in SE Burnaby, BC.
Give me a push?
This is why it’s a good idea to use toothpicks when feeding a turtle. She doesn’t bite on purpose, but sometimes she gets carried away, especially when given an uncommon treat like bits of steamed kabocha squash this evening.
Fortunately she spits out the bits of toothpick that she bites off in her eagerness. Sometimes we feed her treat using chopsticks.
Spent a couple of hours at Iona Beach Regional Park near YVR today. There were lots of bald eagles, flocks of snow geese, a few hawks, and some herons.
Not sure… rough-legged hawk?
Got off on my near-daily Burnaby south slope ravine walk a bit late today.
It’s been a great winter for beautiful skies in south Burnaby, BC, ranging from inspiring to moody. Here’s a shot taken from Taylor Park during a one-hour ramble on south slope trails.
I watched this common merganser swim in the overflow pond and the sediment pond in the Byrne Creek artificial spawning habitat in SE Burnaby, BC. Don’t see these in Byrne that often.
After awhile I guess it had enough of being observed and flushed spectacularly, zooming right over us. I whipped my wee Canon pocket camera up and got this shot full of motion and blur, but I kinda like it!
Too bad I didn’t have a much faster DSLR at hand…
