I like it when I can mix up the greens with another colour. Especially purple! Helps the birds to pop out, I think.
I never get tired of seeing all of the Blue Herons in Jericho Park in Vancouver. There are so many – nesting in the trees, feeding at the ponds and flying over. Further down along Spanish Banks, dozens wade into low-tide looking for a meal. Lots of painting opportunities.
I thought this would be appropriate for the season, as it’s based on a photo from last spring in Alberta. Taken just before they all ran for the trees.
There seems to be a lot of hummingbirds around lately. I see or hear one every time I am out for a walk. I guess they are enjoying the stretch of sunny weather and perhaps the quiet, empty streets.
For my beautiful niece Janae.
Here is another curious, playful squirrel. Or if I’m realistic, he’s probably wary, defensive and ready to run. But still cute.
