What a treat on a rainy walk in south Burnaby — Yumi spotted this barred owl near Byrne Creek and we spoke to it gently while I fished my wee pocket Canon out for a few shots.
Yumi took the day off to work on her CPA program, and after five hours of stuffing her head decided she needed a break.
We are so fortunate to have such a lovely oasis of urban biodiversity right out our back gate!
It’s doing that ‘looking at you backwards’ thing that owls do so well.
Took a three-hour photo stroll along Fraser Foreshore Park in South Burnaby today.
Oh yeah! There. Right there… Ah….
I am song. Hear me sing.
Flashing a bit of sleeve. This could set off a kimono duel… : – )
There were several Northern Harriers near Centennial Beach in Delta, BC, today. Also lots of other birds, and a variety of bees and wasps, several of them burrowing species.
Swallows in, er, action
Bunny taking the sun. Yumi spotted the bunny — it’s great having a patient partner along to double the eyes searching for wildlife!
Lots of burrowing insects

Lots of birds at Fraser Foreshore Park in south Burnaby today. Also a furry critter.
And let’s throw in a few pollinators from today’s walk:
Thank goodness this is “just woke up” face, and not “feed me now” face…
First, raw, by the succulent handful.
Second, garnish for morning multigrain flakes, afternoon treat ice-cream concoctions.
Next, muffins, pies…
Last, freeze some.
Spent a couple of hours shooting around the ponds in Burnaby’s Fraser Foreshore Park.

Happy to see lots of fish on Byrne Creek walk in SE Burnaby, BC, today.
This shot was taken very slowly and carefully : -)
