ALMOND ISLET EAGLE CLOSE UP
It finally was sunny today & I got out in the boat! Headed straight down to Cannery to check on the Lions. Upon arriving I was pleasantly surprised to find their numbers had increased dramatically! There use to be around 2 dozen & now there are around 50-60 of them!
The Stellers came back as well! I estimated around a dozen or so?
The entire float was filled & as a result,below water from all the weight! Unfortunately for me a cloud moved in & snuffed the good light! I took some token shots & headed over to Rankin Rocks. I found a few Harbour Seals hauled out in the warm sunlight. I managed to get only acouple of shots before they dove into the water.
I headed back for the sunset in the harbour.I did stop at Tsapee Narrows to say hello briefly to the Daredevil & Delilah. I noticed that K19′s gang of Trumpeters was in that shallow bay near Tsapee,but because they were in the shadows,I didn’t stop.
Continued on to visit with Moe at Morpheus. I took just a few because I wasn’t thrilled with the light at that moment. Left for Deadman Island to visit with Romeo & Juliette. They both seemed very active! One of their offspring was trying to come back! Both of them chased it off but with a tender wing! They meant it no harm,but made it clear that it was not welcome at this time! Mum & Dad reserve the right for visitations! They are beginning to nest right now & may have eggs in the nest? Any other time & they might allow one of their offspring to visit for a snack? There is no golden rule other than to say that during nesting season it is absolutely verboten for any animal to come near the nest!
They managed to persuade it to leave & enjoyed the sunset with me.
