While walking down by the bay we spotted a pair of lesser yellowlegs shorebirds. These were most likely migrant birds passing through. We had seen the greater yellowlegs while in British Columbia last year.
These were feeding in a muddy patch and some shallow water left over from the high waters in the lake where it flooded a few areas on the waterfront trail.
I was lucky to capture the great blue heron just as it took off in its hunt for more food.
It has a huge wingspan.
It has been foggy overnight and when we arrived there were lots of spider webs.
Webs are a challenge to photograph, get the light in the wrong direction and you can’t see the web at all.
The sun hadn’t burned away all the fog when I took this reflection photo by the turtle pond.
Have a look at some more of my lens friends photos.
