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.
A young House Sparrow
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
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.
