You’d think it should be the Canada Goose, huh?! Not so … it’s the Loon. We went out for a spin yesterday, in the sunny but cool weather. While waiting for the ferry, over to the peninsula, I saw something out in the water:
It isn’t all that common to see them, and this was shot from afar. They’re always so low in the water, but you can still see the truly amazing pattern of its feathers.
It’s a wonderful time right now — the apple blossom period is just over, and now we have all the wild flowers out in full force. Lupines and flox, for example. I just love these colours!
