But first thing in this morning I went to Richmond centre with my mother for our weekly grocery shopping.
Once again, we strolled in Minoru Park before heading to the Public Market.
Minoru Chapel with gorgeous blue sky. Some people call it the Olympus Blue (for the blue color that Olympus cameras produce). Cool!
The other direction with beautiful pink and white cherry blossoms.
Through the branches and flowers...
A cute squirrel in the park. My mother asked me if I can tell the difference between a male and female, I said no. But then my mother pointed to the photograph. Oh, it is a male!
After we got home, I began working on the manuscript right away. After a few hours, I decided to take a break and biked to the dyke.
Relatively cloudy day.
Snow Geese on Fraser River. Their presence and the flying seaplanes flying over the river seems quite dangerous to me.
Double-crested Cormorant in breeding plumage.
Waving its wings around.
Young heron near the river.
Today I saw my first hummingbird of the year with it whizzing above me. There's no way I took a photo of that. And when it was perching on a treetop, I was too slow in getting out my camera before it flew away. Maybe next time!
I was watching this kinglet on the branch (left-top) and when I snapped a photo, it was gone! Looking at the photograph, I realized I just caught a picture of it in-air! What luck and what an image! Too bad, the focus was on the branch and not the bird.
An unknown wasp in the Sharing Farm.
Nearby was this bee-like fly. Maybe this genus?
On the currant, there were two snails spotted. One was this Grove Snail.
Another was this. I wonder if the snails will affect the plant at all?
Yellow-faced Bumblebee enjoying the flowers.
Young heron. My mother said this look as if it is taking off its cloth.
Sky-watch of the day. Clouds rolling across. Time to go home and do some work.
