I went looking for bears tonight but realized even before I left that the odds were against me.It was coming up to high tide,so my furry friends would be resting inside the coolness of the forest waiting for the next low tide.
The Daredevil was there to greet me however! He’s such a pleasure to be around…..especially when ones furry friends are MIA.
Romeo was posing in front of Mountain Ash.The berries are bright red & edible.They provide a much needed source of Vitamin C during the winter time for many birds.
I say “daring” because of where he perched.That limb is from a dead tree that had fallen into the water awhile ago.Dead tree limbs tend to become dry & when you perch upon dead dry limbs they can snap! I was expecting it to snap & get a great action shot but the limb proved tougher.
I always come visit Maggie before Romeo & Juliette simply because of geography. Maggie got two visits from me tonight! Why? Because after I left her I went to go visit Romeo & he didn’t fly out to greet me! First time thats happen in a long time.The heat makes them lethargic!
So with no action from Romeo,I decided to go back to visit Maggie & she was more than happy to accommodate! Thats why she’s my girlfriend!
The Daredevil flew out to greet me & a Crow decided to attack him.All Crows hate eagles! Eagles do eat their eggs but generally Crows just seem to hate eagles!
I’m dedicating this post to my older brother Gord.He passed away today. I’ll miss him.I wished him well on his journey. A journey we all must take one day
Ernie is the one on the bottom.If you have a keen eye you’ll see the size difference!
This was the last shot for the evening.A unexpected localized rain shower dampened my photographic hopes. Romeo seemed fine with it!
Notice in the last shot the difference between the eye pupils. The bright side is closed down,while the dark side is opened more.
A Frontal system was moving in when I shot this.The leading edge was translucent which made the sunset more interesting!
