Today’s Photo A Day Challenge prompt is “Shoes”. I used this photo from the store window in Victoria. Oh dear (deer)! Don’t think I could walk in these.
Fun theme this week over at 365 Days in Nature. Today is something that starts with “A”, and we go through G as the week passes. I saw this today when I was walking in Stanley Park, and it just said “AWWWW”. (starts with A)
I took this today at Lost Lagoon (in Stanley Park). I liked the lines of the feather patterns, and thought they’d look interesting in black and white. I posted it on Only Shades of Gray.
I posted this shot on the other two photo groups I belong to, and don’t post all the time. (they are “Canadian Bird Photographer”, and “Wildlife, Birds and Nature”) If you look at yesterday’s blog post, you’ll see a seagull. Who I joked looks like he’s playing an invisible violin. Here is a heron playing an invisible piano. HA!
We had afternoon and evening plans, but because of a series of circumstances, both have been postponed. So I had the day to just “be”. I made us a nice breakfast with turkey bacon, eggs, potato/squash hash browns and toast….
Sat out on the deck for a while and watched the clouds and hummingbirds (soooo much action at the feeder today)….
Played with Neva….”Neva TV, is on the air”…
“look at me”….
This was tonight’s dinner, takeout Japanese bento box. Dennis is out, and I didn’t feel like cooking. I REALLY need to get back in the kitchen!!!
And here are creature/scenery pictures that I took on my walk around Lost Lagoon in Stanley Park today. Dennis is so right when he says Lost Lagoon is one of my “happy places”. Love all the critters, the air smells so good, it’s quiet and calm and is really a great place to walk. Today, there weren’t that many people, but there were A LOT of creatures (with character)….
Ordinary duck, but I liked the background….
Eye catching red eyes, and blue feathers of a baby wood duck…
…waiting for her wings…..
…Mom of three….
…sibling love, or sibling rivalry?
A very poor attempt at forming a random heart?
Young wood duck with attitude, and part baby part adult plumage…..
Two more incoming…..
My neck would be sore…..
Gawky teens, half duckling, half adult…all fluffy……
Lunchtime! He caught the dragonfly mid air. Not a good day for the dragonfly….
I appreciate the foreground subjects Mr./Ms. Geese/Ducks
There weren’t to many turtles out and about today. This one was tiny….
The path on the north side of the pond….
Two swans a sleepin’….. (but no Lords A Leapin. That is so bad!! Sorry…)
Mom, I’m tired of hanging with the ducks, I’m going to go and eat with the geese…..
Air traffic controller….
…clear for double fly by…..
Two herons, one really bad hair day…..
Another with the invisible piano….
Take a bow…..
Looking up at the birds cleared for fly by…..
Yes, I have nuts…..
….but you can’t see them…..
The birds can’t see them either…..
We we close with the “AWWWWW” (from a safe distance) section of the post. There were so many families all hanging out, and they are pretty fearless. That said, the zoom lens and crop made it “close enough” for me.
Have a great Sunday everyone!!!!
