Ohh my! Yesterday evening's photo from North Saanich ... I was sitting quietly photographing Bufflehead Ducks from a distance and heard a disturbing sound. At first I thought it was an uprising from a number of seals that were all around the bay, basking at the surface, but then looked over and saw herons frantically flying and letting out loud cries. As is very common here, a Bald Eagle made 2 visits to the Heron rookery and removed young Herons from nests....
This about summed up my day and recent weeks.
Nature unfolding in front of us... Not always kind or pleasant.
What is currently happening with the human population seems to be a matter of intense debate.
The images were shot at a very long distance and are quite cropped out, but set the scene.
Thanks for looking... TerryV
