Red-flanked Bluetail, Brambling, Lower Mainland Twitch

January 22nd, 2013  |  By  |  Published in Backyard Birds, Bird Watching, Birds, Nature Photography, Nature Viewing, Uncategorized

This weekend was the first chance that I was able to get over to the Lower Mainland to twitch the red-flanked bluetail (Tarsiger cyanurus) that was found by Colin McKenzie on January 13. Like the citrine wagtail, the red-flanked bluetail at Queens Park in New Westminster is a Canadian first. Since it seeing it involved a […]

Rock Wren at Miracle Beach Provincial Park

October 13th, 2009  |  By  |  Published in BC Parks, Bird Watching, Birds

Yesterday morning I took my son Alden out for a walk at Miracle Beach Provincial Park to enjoy the crisp fresh air and the changing colours of the fall. I spent some time birdwatching (as best as one can with a two year old in tow) and photographing the fall leaves. It was on our […]

    I don’t currently have a long telephoto lens so it was good to try out some during the LondonDrugs​ and Fujifilm Cameras​ photo walk in Victoria, British Columbia today. I took this image with the XF 55-200mm and the XF 18-135mm WR lens. Both were sharp, but this photograph with the 55-200 seemed a tad sharper (maybe because this field of view is in the middle of the zoom’s range at about 120mm). I also had an opportunity to use the XF 50-140mm WR lens earlier in the walk and it was very sharp (but also a lot heavier).

    Expectation

    Must be the warmer weather or perhaps a late spring migration - there seems to be more feral carts on the move turning up in interesting locations. I spotted this one on  an evening scooter ride with my kids and thought that the juxtaposition of the loading bay doors and the single cart was nicely balanced. We kept our distance from this unpredictable little fellow - it seemed to be waiting wistfully for the loading bay doors to open.
