Some photos from the last few weeks.
These were from yesterday at Hatley Castle. The weather has been a challenge for photos.
As you can see we have had too much rain. Below is from the truck window at Goldstream Park where the salmon have started to come in so soon the eagles will gather there.
One of my favorite trees stumps at Goldstream.
Downtown in the rain.
Storms out at the beaches in Oak Bay at Turkey Head.
Then a break in the rain and I ran through the leaves at Mount Doug Park.
Out in Sidney at the farms all the children are getting their pumpkins .
We have not been able to do much birding this month due to the rain but we did see a Lapland Longspur at Cattle point.
I did see some Yellow Rumped Warblers at the park.
I seldom can focus on a flying bird but this heron was flying slowly and I got a shot of him at Panama Flats. The small Panasonic Camera I use, GH4, has an electronic shutter that is much slower than the usual mechanical shutter I was used to on the Canon cameras. I have never been able to get a good flying shot since I switched to the small camera.
This is a Marbled Godwit that we saw at Esquimalt Lagoon.
After all the rain I think it is the end of the butterfly season here, we did find some Sulphurs out in the farm fields just around two weeks ago.
Well that is a wrap up of the last few weeks, just a lot of rain and cloudy weather, not looking forward to this winter. I guess I will do a lot of interior shots.
