March Photo Scavenger Hunt

Well, here we are entering my favorite season ~ Spring!  We are also experiencing some glorious weather this week.  Time to put my March photos before heading outside :)





1.  Local
A photo taken down at the local beach front yesterday ~
Buds are blossoming ~

2.  City
A Spring scene taken while visiting Beacon Hill Park in Victoria, BC, the capital city of British Columbia.
3. Stripes
There were a few birds vying for this category, all showing off their stripes ~  A pair of ducks won out!

4.  Crisp
Although we are experiencing an early Spring, a crisp coldness is apparent at higher levels.

5.  Street Art
Chemainus is referred to as the 'little town that did' ~ famous for its murals.





6. Tiles
A tiled roof spotted while driving through a residential neighbourhood.

7. Rock Stairs
I noticed this combination of rock and stairs leading up to a large home.




8. Hair
Hair it is!
Edit to add:  Spring is in the hair ;)  (Sometimes I make myself laugh.)

9.  Measure
Here's a bald eagle taking measure of its surroundings ~
and some vials of liquid spotted in the lab of the Deep Bay Marine Field Station 
10. Large
Near the location of the previous rock stairs photo, there was a large heavy duty excavator resting atop an even larger pile of rocks ~




11.  For one
A kayak for one shares the coastline with gulls galore ~


 12.  Landscape

I have many more photos for March, and hopefully will get a chance to post some more in the next while.

Thanks to Greenthumb for continuing to sponsor these monthly Scavenger Hunts.  I hope you enjoy my photos :)

  7. Oh, oh, oh! The lovely brightness of spring flowers in your neck o' the woods! Loved those first three shots. And that last one of the landscape is both rugged and dreamy. Maybe it's the sunshine.
