There are many beautiful lotus flowers, but most of them are a bit far away from the shore. This is the closest one I can photograph. Love its colours.
This was one group of ducklings that we saw. Here was the mother keeping a watchful eye on her ducklings.
Close look at the adult female.

What a cute animal!
After we left, we came across another baby animal - a black bunny that could easily fit into my palm. So cute!
You'd make a tasty treat for some raptor if they ever get their claws on you. Fortunately, this bunny seems very alert and ready to pounce every time we made a sudden movement. Good luck, little bunny.
Walking back to the parking lot.
There is a World Congress of Herpetology (WCH) happening in UBC this and next week. I've decided to volunteer at this event before flying back to Ontario. Plus, I get a chance to hear all the interesting presentations in the field of herpetology (and ichthyology). Should be fun. Volunteer orientation takes tomorrow.
