Baby raccoons are so cute! I found a family of raccoons in Beacon Hill Park a while ago. The mom would bring the whole pack of about six babies to the water for a drink. I put this to black and white for Black and White Weekend. They were very curious about me, and they wanted to stay and stare at me and mom wanted them to drink and to leave. (I was looking for a Tanager, found raccoons).
The mom made many little calls and whistles to her crew of babies, they ignored her and stared at me a lot. There was fresh water for them to drink but they mostly played and climbed trees and stared. The raccoon baby and the deer baby are for the Critter memes. I found this baby deer up island near where we put our trailer in Parksville. The baby deer was not afraid either.
This is a shot below of the sunset in Parksville from the same trailer place that we stayed at. The deer were all here also. I wanted to get a full moon shot but it was blurry.
These two shots below were taken at Cattle Point just a few days ago. The weather has been very cloudy and raining here. These are for Sky Watch and Weekend Reflections.
These are some shots from my yard in the summer and fall. I have put in some flowers for the weekend flower memes.
This is a macro of a peach on our little peach tree we planted. I bought a tiny macro lens for the FZ200. You can get them on line for a few bucks. It is not a real quality lens. You can find them on Amazon. The one I got is called 0.43x wide angle lens but it works as a macro. You screw it on the original lens. They cost about twenty bucks.
These are the sunflowers we grew in the garden for the birds.
I cropped in on the seeds a bit more so it is macro.
Below are some shadows in the forest out near Sooke at Charters Creek. For Shadow Shot. Charters has an amazing fish walk now made by the Sooke Salmon Enhancement Society. It is the best thing I have seen in my lifetime that anyone did to help nature.
Two of my YouTube movies are inserted here of the fish spawning and going up Charters Creek. If it is blank, just reload the page and it comes in or just continue reading. Or check out my YouTube site.
The reflection this week is from Hatley Park. I can't recall what this duck is. My memory is on holiday lately. Perhaps someone will id it.
I will be off the computer for a few days but will be happy to read any comments. Thanks in advance.
Thank you to each of these memes for allowing bloggers to share their story.
