Turtles And Herons And More, Oh My.

I wanted to go for a walk and to take some pictures for a tutorial I am working on. I walked around my neighbourhood and then took some pics in the park south of South Park School. This took about two hours and I was ready to have an ice cream and go home.

As I was walking down Douglas Street towards Beacon Drive - In I saw an interesting photo opportunity in Beacon Hill Park. I took the pic and then I saw a Canada Goose. I photographed the Goose and then I laid on the ground to get some great pics of a turtle. I finally started to leave the park and found myself below several Heron nests. I got some pics of Herons too.

I finally made it to the Beacon and it was full of people so I settled for a frappuccino at Starbucks. When I got home I had been out for about four hours and had taken about 45 pics.

Note: The Heron Cam shows pictures and streaming video of the nests I was standing under.

Ice cream and a frap? Lucky dog.

I missed out on the icecream but the frap attack was good. I surrendered to it peacefully.

Hmmmm what did the tourists think of this guy? Another tourist on the ground. Your pics are always great Leon. Keep up the good work.

Thanks ld. At least if I was armed with a camera instead of a coke can they wouldn't think I was passing out.:)
