We are starting over at the ABC Wednesday Link Up! We are at the letter "a". Today I have an Anise Swallowtail Butterfly and
here are two Anna's Hummingbirds. These are for Macro Monday. The Swallowtail was taken in the warm summer months but the Anna's are out on my deck all winter.
Here are some American Robins eating the berries over in Oak Bay taken while we looked for the Redpolls.
The American Coast Guard was at the dock downtown the other day.
For Our World Tuesday I give you some photos from the Butchart Gardens evening lights fantastic. Their lights are so amazing! This is the Chinese Dragon display. This dragon was given to the gardens to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the sister-city relationship between Victoria and the city of Suzhou in Jianqsu Province, China.
This is the Milk Maids from the Eight Maids-a-milking from the song Twelve Days of Christmas. They have a Magic of Christmas Walk where the kids pick out the items in the Twelve Days of Christmas.
For Wild Bird Wednesday I have the Redpolls. Hundreds of Redpolls have come to town.
Also just for fun a beautiful Varied Thrush out at Goldstream.
For Nature Notes Tuesday some sleepy shorebirds and a curious little otter who was at Cowichan while we looked for eagles.
For Good Fences Thursday I have a lovely horse behind his fence.
On Facebook you can see my Island Rambles Page where I post frequently. I post videos frequently on my Island Rambles YouTube Channel also. You can find me on Twitter here.
