Moms comment: Bald Eagle on a treetop, taken from far away with telephoto lens on 400mm, – he was high up also.
You can see his tongue in this one : )
At one point there was a lot of screeching going on from this Eagle. The great blue herons were going crazy, also making a Lot of noise, in fright.
this is a famous statue in Stanley Park. I grew up in that area so remember seeing it all the time on our visits to the park

I love the snow. It’s true what Mum says about the hush that it brings with it. Something very magical about a snowy night to me.
Moms words: snow falling at midnight, it wouldn’t stop. 27 November 2006. Went out front to capture some images.
You can see where DH had already shovelled the driveway countless times, and it’s already filling up with snow again 🙂 Plus you can see the snow actually falling in the background, (where it’s darker, up the hill a bit) as well as closer to the camera, plus it’s sortof sparkling in places.
There’s a street light near the end of our driveway, which explains the different lighting on our vehicle and at that end of the driveway etc. You can almost “hear” the hush that descends on everything during a heavy snowfall such as this. Very beautiful but very inconvenient 🙂
Moms words: this is the gorgeous maple tree in our friend’s front garden, directly opposite our house. Only just realized this tree was there, so had a great time capturing loads of images of these beautiful red maple leaves “our Emblem Dear, the Maple Leaf Forever”, as our anthem goes.
taken on a foggy day. the cedar tree trunk at the side of this photo is a wonderful tall tree in their garden also
Love this of the Eagle soaring over Mom
Moms comment: Bald Eagle flying free in our area, at the Great Blue heron nesting area. Bald eagles are also nesting there, we saw 2 eagles sitting on nests at the same place last evening.
This gives you an idea of the magnificent wingspan.
Moms words: angel wings of the great blue heron, as he was lifting off from beside the road. I think this is my favourite capture of my heron shots so far.
Also like the wild flowers and grasses here
Love how Mom points out the farmhouse lights on the hill in the bottom left
snow geese flight at twilight. I like how the snow geese look so white against the dusk sky. And in my version the lights in the farmhouse windows can be seen, standing out against the darkening hills.
