Pretty good day - wildlife-wise

Glaucous-winged Gull (Larus glaucescens)
This Glaucous-winged Gull was staring at me when I arrived at Phoenix Pond in Steveston. Looking around, I realized there was a dead salmon in the water below.

A large-sized fish, at least 80-cm long.

A Mallard for comparison.

Plenty of birds around waiting for an easy meal.

Spotted this White-crowned Sparrow on its way to the reeds.

Over at London's Landing, there was a group of Bushtits hanging out in the trees beyond the railings.

Not a big fan of birds with bright eyes, I like dark-eyed birds more.

Pecking at dead seeds (for insects?)

Almost an action shot.

Lower mountain ranges to the south of Mount Baker

Unknown Bumblebee (Bombus spp.)
An unknown bumblebee on a thistle. I used my 70-300 lens for this photo (manually focus), and because it was in a shaded area, I had to use the flash. It turned out surprisingly sharp.

A Woodland Skipper, I think.

Saw this Common Whitetail (Plathemis lydia) female. I like this spot where I can see lots of dragonflies and they like to perch for you to photograph them.
