The saga of my failed birds in flight shots continues. Maybe the pair below could qualify as a new and rare breed.I had a very enjoyable visit with my new friend, Dianne and her dog, Haley, today. We had a latte (me) and tea (Dianne) at Thomas Haas, only slightly disturbed by a flash hail storm. I found a small piece of turkey from our school kitchen for Haley, and she stares at me hopefully, but there was no more to be had. I must remember to bring treats to school with me today.
Beautiful ride home last night. This picture from the Lions Gate. The stormy weather can be seen over the mountains as it clears to the South.
This one is taken from English Bay, at dusk.
Is anyone able to identify this pair of strange birds? I thought they looked quite beautiful against the setting sun colors.
Bill's suggestion was "Shoebird" but I'm hoping to other thoughts:) Shortly after taking that photo, I hit a bump in the road (no accident, just a minor one) but my shifter cable snapped. Luckily, Clint, of Ride On Again bike shop, was just leaving (well after hours), as he had been working on his own bike. He put on a new cable, which worked great, and off I went, a very happy camper. Thank you Clint!!!
