So I thought I’d go photo hunting for birds and insects down at the Fraser Foreshore Park ponds in south Burnaby just west of Byrne Creek.
This is the first pond west of the outfall of Byrne Creek into the Fraser. Ran into this dyke construction. Thought I’d better go home and start building an Ark. . .

I observed this heron as it fished the mouth of Byrne Creek in south Burnaby, BC. I was rewarded when it snagged a crayfish.
I watched it stalking for about an hour, and even with a tripod my hands were starting to cramp by the time the action finally started. And it was over in about five seconds .
