A few shots from our recent camping trip to Nairn Falls. We drove up the Pemberton Meadows Road and saw some cool stuff.
A young Black Bear
Came across this unfortunately mashed wee snake near the bridge crossing the Lillooet River just off the Pemberton Meadows Road.
Some creative person added eyes and a forked tongue to this fallen tree between Nairn Falls and One Mile Lake.
When uninvited guests arrive at the picnic table, sometimes it’s best to give them their own place setting : – ) . . .
Looks like we may be in for some moisture. . .
Southridge Drive and Ron McLean Park in south Burnaby, BC, on our evening walk.
I was coming home from the post office, and caught a flash of yellow zooming into the forest next to our garage. I got out, watched and waited. . . and success!
Max 40X optical zoom on my wee Canon SX730HS and tight cropping.
BTW, thanks to my Facebook friends who come to my rescue when I’m not sure what kind of bird I’ve “shot.”
We took a two-night camping trip to Nairn Falls Provincial Park near Pemberton, BC.
One day we drove to Duffey Lake, stopping to check out Cayoosh Creek.
A wee bit chilly : – ).
Mourning Cloak butterfly. It wouldn’t sit still for more than a second or two, so this is the best shot I got.
Nairn Falls near Pemberton, BC.
No post-processing aside from minor cropping and sharpening. All colour/motion changes are simply through varying exposure and combinations of shutter speed/aperture.
A few shots of wildlife encountered on the trail.
I’m told this is a young Ruffed Grouse
Hairy Woodpecker according to app
We saw damselflies courting at Rice Like in North Vancouver today. Boreal Bluets?
I think Cherry-Faced Meadowhawk?
We spotted a few of these today, and when I posted them to Facebook (my favourite animal ID app : – ), was told they are Red-Legged Frogs. They were barely the size of my thumbnail.
There were a lot of people on Burnaby Mountain tonight. Long weekend? Hoping to see the Northern Lights? That didn’t pan out, but it was a lovely sunset.
This is a series of shots taken of downtown Vancouver from the mountain, with deliberate variations in focus. . .
Playground of the Gods at night
It was a lovely afternoon for exploring
Barnet Marine Park in north Burnaby, BC. I try to get up there a few times a year. It was fairly busy just before the end of summer and the start of school, so not as many birds around.
Drummond’s Walk, named after the late Doug Drummond, a Burnaby mayor who “shared the dream that many citizens had expressed to him about public access and trails on Burnaby’s waterfront.. . . for all to enjoy.”
Hard to believe he died 17 years ago, I remember attending his funeral.
