ROMEO’S SUNSET

It was good to see my friend again! I missed Romeo! I’ve been back east dealing with a family illness.

I went out hoping to get some moon shots but by the time the moon rose high enough some clouds had moved in to block it. This months moon is called a”Sturgeon” moon.

    1. thank you Robbie! I went back to my hometown to say goodbye to my sister. She has cancer and will pass in the next few weeks. Just heard from my other sister that her dog passed last night. 2020 seems to be the year of the Reaper.

  1. I’ve “liked” for the photo of Romeo with the stunning background, Sorry to hear about the health issues in your family. Looks like you had a great evening on this shoot.

    1. It does look ok but to be honest the sunset was almost snuffed! When I went out the sunset looked like it would be excellent but as the hours passed I could see thick cloud coming in from the west and knew my nice sunset had already set!
      Romeo and the Daredevil both looked a bit tattered.Its molting season right now so their feathers are falling out.

      1. Well at least you got a visit in with your feathered friends and got to see the cute otter. Our geese and ducks are molting right now and they won’t return to our Park until after Labor Day (usually). I saw a hawk overhead at the Park today – guess its flight feathers were not affected by the annual molt. Do eagles lose their flight feather and have to stay up in the nest then? How do they eat and take care of their young then?

      2. I wondered how they managed … have you found any more eagle feathers lately?
        My canaries lost every feather on their bodies during the molting process. – I felt badly for both of them. They’d hop from perch to perch and feathers would be flying and they were listless and lethargic the entire period. They were both males and it took them another month after molting finished to begin singing again and that was not as strong of a song as before. We had a tape recorder and taped their song at its strongest/loudest and would play the tape to encourage singing again. It worked, but it was a slow comeback.

  2. Nice to see you, too, Wayne. Hope all is better with your family. Gorgeous pic of Romeo! I just started a short blogging break. In my last post, I shared a pic of a black bear roaming around the entrance near Sequoia National park. 😁

      1. there is a small island near Tofino that has Daffodils come up each year. I do not why someone took them all the way out there but imagine it was for someone who passed as well? I may do the same thing myself?
        thank you for the great idea Lavinia!

  3. Hello Wayne, I had to write and tell you, I just now saw my first black bear at my cabin. I was sitting inside looking out the window and I saw a black shadow, I wasn’t sure at first and then he moved. A black bear Wayne, right by our pond. It was so exciting to see. I stood up to get my binoculars and he ran off. I am still going to get a trail cam and put it back there. :)

    1. Oh that is exciting Sandra! Congratulations! You’ll always remember that moment of discovery! Being close to a bear is very exciting and If that bear doesn’t run off (most do btw) It’s even more exciting!
      I wonder If it’s a female or male?
      Yes,do that,put up a trail camera. Search for animal trails and fresh paw prints to find out where it came from?
      Keep me in the loop please!

      1. I will Wayne, I have been up here for 4 years now and this is the first bear I have seen on my property. It was starting to get dark, so I did not get a good look at it. He ran off so quick when I stood up. There are supposedly moose up here also. Have not seen one yet.

      2. Thats good to hear the bear was automatically skittish of humans Sandra! They are sensitive to movement.
        Moose tend to hang out near lakes/large ponds.
        Bears are searching for higher protein right now.

      3. That is good to know Wayne, I was sitting in my cabin with a light on inside, and he saw my movement. Do they have really good eye sight? I read they rarely attack humans unless startled. It is all forest where he came out of and we dont go back there unless on a 4 wheeler. There are tons of wild raspberries back there.

      4. We watched a few videos on why beats attack. It showed that black bears have been recorded as attacking a humun. They said it was rare, but the one was because it did not see the person and was startled. That you should yell at them, and not turn your back on them.
