My husband and I are usually in a hurry to get home after a weekend away, and therfore we usually drive theVancouver Island inland highway; a faster yet boring route. However, it was a nice day so we decided to take the slower yet more scenic route along the water.
As we were passing through Fanny Bay, we could see the Stellar sea lions had hauled themselves out of the water and onto some log booms and floats in the bay.
These two were having what seemed to be a lover’s quarrel; lots of barking and snarling. However, it appeared to be over as quickly as it started. Isn’t it amazing what one kiss will do?
Usually I see swans, Canada geese and a variety of ducks. however, on this trip I saw this deer paddling down the river.
The morning sun back lighting the fern fronds made them look like flames jumping out of the “blue”
The banks of this creek were thick with frost which accentuated the morning sun reflecting on the water.
I generally don’t have much luck photographing herons. This one was busy looking for dinner and wasn’t concerned about me or my camera.
