We went out on a little spin yesterday, looking for eagles. Now … eagles don’t appear «on demand», unless you go to the city landfill. We didn’t feel like that, we wanted a more scenic experience so we took a ferry over to Kingston peninsula.
Didn’t take long before I spotted this guy:
As I was standing there, trying to get a decent shot of him, I heard the characteristic sound of a woodpecker. In fact, there were three of them, up in the tree, and not too scared either.
We drove on, along Milkish Creek, halted at a spot we always stop, where two, extremely friendly dogs always appear! They live nearby, they must recognize us by now. They pick up little branches, come up to you, looking with those eyes … wanting you to throw it. And I do. Every time. Nobody can show happiness like a dog … their entire bodies just radiate friendliness.
It was a very nice day!
