Today was just one of the days I been wishing for - although many people probably wished the same thing judging by the number of people today at the dyke.
Plenty of birds, such as Golden-crowned Sparrows, were out foraging.
While at the Share-Farm, I saw a Short-eared Owl flying towards the Snow Geese and disappearing behind the tall grasses. I decided to go and see where it had landed and hoped I will be able to photograph it. And there it was! Standing on top of a pole and looking at the grasses below.
So magnificent. It flew away shortly afterwards, but what an experience to see it closer!
By the Terra Nova Slough, I saw a pair of Killdeers again at the spot where a pair nested last year. I wonder if they are the same couple.
Beautiful sky-watching at Terra Nova.
Zooming out of the TCON lens gave this interesting dark corners around the image. Is this what lomography is?
Sunset - time to go home.
Oh yeah, Happy Valentine's Day / Chinese New Year / first Canadian gold medal in Canada (can't believe no one won a gold back in '88).
