Biked to Steveston & Saw Kingfisher

I biked southward along the dyke today - towards Steveston. I did not saw too much wildlife today. But while I was photographing some Mallards, a blue something flew in between us. I looked at it and it was a female Belted Kingfisher (Megaceryle alcyon)!

It didn't stay perched for too long, and pretty soon it was off to another tree and then gone. Definitely made today's trip worthwhile.

I biked around the Garry Point Park enjoying the sunny blue sky and the sound of the ocean.

Good picture of that kingfisher. I saw one the last trip down to the river but it was on the move and too far away for MY lens!

Lovely sunset picture
