Ooooooh! NO words to express how much I loved seeing these creatures.

Cute critters that were captured well by your camera.

Friko said...

Phew, I have just caught up with your last posts, how did you fit all those trips in?

Do your feet ever touch the ground?

Whoever took the photos, my compliments.

Kay L. Davies said...

Friko -- The trips have been done over the last few years, certainly not all at once.
For a while I felt that my feet never touched the ground, because I live in eastern Alberta and my parents were in care in western BC. I was back and forth every six weeks, for a week at a time, for three years, and fitted Dick's adventure travels in between. More than somewhat exhausting, I must admit.

I love that owl. They do look wise don't they?

Kay said...

Wow! The orange on that Oyster Catcher's beak is amazing.

Kay, this is the most traveled blog I have ever read! These are gorgeous creatures! I have a long ways to go before I start my retirement tour!

Gary said...

Great photos Kay. I haven't posted the critters yet because it doesn't seem to be up and running. Boom & Gary of the Vermilon.
