I have added poster edges to this photo of a couple of shorebirds; one type shown here is known as the Killdeer , a ringed plover famous for its "broken wing" ruse if under threat. Can you spot it? As a matter of interest, when it's egg-laying time, the eggs are left unprotected in a shallow depression, but they have a remarkable resemblance to the rocks surrounding them.
Here's what the original photo looks like:
This bald eagle was circling overhead, and fortunately I was able to open my camera case and click a photo before he disappeared behind the trees.
Canada Geese are notable for leaving signs of their presence, and not very pleasant ones at that, however, here's another impression they left behind!
Well these gulls look like they are waiting for something and don't want to get their feet wet in the meantime ~
Now for some foliage ~
I have "posterized" this photo of some detritus topped with a white feather in its cap!
Here is my tiny oak tree that I planted from an acorn. Its leaves have taken some wear and tear over the season, and are now showing their lovely autumn colours before the 5 leaves will fall off...while I await new ones to sprout in the Spring :)
A colourful tree not far from the water's edge ~
Here, a gull finds a natural bridge spanning the river. What is it with gulls not wanting to get their feet wet today? ~ a lovely picture of, and for, reflection.
And here's the catch of the day ~ a large Chum salmon for a proud fisherman who was walking towards us!
