EARLY WIND STORM

20150829-2Z6A0131

We got a early reminder of whats to come this Winter. A strong wind storm battered the west coast today. The storm uprooted many trees! Everyone was wondering why so many trees were damaged? We normally get these strong winds in Winter after all the leaves have fallen. Because the leaves acted like tiny little sails,the entire tree took on a greater than normal load pressure from the strong winds! So the trees couldn’t withstand this huge load pressure & went over!
Power was knocked out in many parts of the coast, but Tofino was spared.

I found this eagle on the shore line near Remote Passages. Someone had cleaned a Cod & thrown the carcass on the shore line. Eagles are quick to snap up any & all foods! Both the male & female came by. I believe they are the “Monk’s” eagles.

I saw this bear at Dawley Pass as I was going into Fortune Channel. I thought of stopping but the shadows had already consumed him. I continued on hoping to find one of my furry friends walking along the shore line in golden sunshine…………….but alas,I couldn’t!
So I had to return to this bear. I really hate taking shots of a bear in the shade! Less contrast,less colour,more noise…………….
Seeing as how he was my only furry friend out & about I thanked him as I left.

That white dot under the nose is a very powerful camera! It has night time recording capacity as well as a very powerful zoom lens! They can tell if a ship is leaking oil during the night!
Not sure why they were doing a Tofino fly by?

A MOUTH FULL!

I found this Blue Heron busy with a fish it had just caught. All birds always have to swallow fish head first. That way the fins will fold back. If the fish gets turned around,it’ll get stuck in it’s throat!
I could see a steady vibration coming from it’s mouth of the poor fish fighting a loosing battle! The only reason why it wasn’t swallowing had to be that the fish had gotten turned around?

When you see a bird with it’s wings open,it’s because they are trying to dry them out or warm themselves up.

Notice the Harbour Seals hauled out on the rocks. This is a favourite spot for them to rest. They can relax because of no ground predators being around.

The waves were up enough to make enough noise to cover my boats engine noise, so this Seal never even knew I was there!

I watched “Big Ears” scratch herself for almost 5 minuets straight. I think she’s got a case of mange starting up. The parasite burrows under the skin making it very itchy for the bear!

This is unusual. I found this Sow & her two cubs down in Tsapee Narrows. I’ve never seen a bear there before. She’s not use to company. I was trying to use a large rock as cover to get closer but she spotted me & took off!

I couldn’t find much tonight in the way of my furry friends. I found this one bear (in the shade) cruising along Fortune Channels shore line.
