I love the reflections out at Hatley Park and got some good shots on this visit there. It is an old Edwardian Estate and the home of James Dunsmuir. The park had around 650 acres when he purchased the land and some Douglas Firs around 250 years old still remain.
Below looks tropical but it is just the reflections in the pond. I never go anywhere tropical so I have to find it here.
There are some lovely gardens and the park borders on to Esquimalt Lagoon a salt marsh estuary where we go birding a lot.
Below there is a photographer taking a photo of someone. Who is she taking the photo of? Let's take a closer look.
Then a bride and groom walk on to the bridge! Great place for wedding photos.
Below is just the sunset from my back window.
Now on to some birds. Here is the weird quail that imprinted on to a duck and lives with the ducks at Kings Pond. Does anyone know what he would eat? The ducks there eat grain but he is not so much interested.
Below we have the eagle flying at Goldstream Park.
Then we have the ducks at Esquimalt Lagoon.
Scaup Duck possibly a Lesser
Female Ring-necked Duck
Male Ring-necked duck
Mute Swan grooming feathers in the Lagoon.
I tried to include many reflections, some blue sky, some of my critters which are all birds you will notice and the Fall colors as we do not have many flowers out yet. These are the themes for the weekend memes. Check out the memes on the weekend for great blogs. Have a lovely Valentines Day all my Bloggers I send you my love. cheers.
