We went for a picnic

Down by the river valley and Whitemud Creek on Monday. (click to enlarge any photo)

There was a BC fruit stand at the entrance to the park.

This is the bridge over Whitemud Creek.

It's a good thing we brought our own wood for our Smokies!

This fellow serenaded us while we were there.

Good thing his friend came along and was in a better position to photograph.

But it's this shot that leads me to believe these are Cedar Waxwings.

This was our reward after a big wind and dark clouds sent our feathered friends away (there is a bit of rainbow there).

As we were cleaning up, we spotted this lovely Hawk soaring above us. Sadly my zoom is not quite up to the task of getting a very clear shot. (Unless it is a Bald Eagle - except the tail isn't white)

Have a good day all.

Reb, those are terrific. The fruit shot is really good and most enticing.
The bird silhouette on the dead tree is my favourite. Excellent job and very "Legend of Sleepy Hollow."

Reb said...

Thanks Leah. I like that one myself ;)

I think it's a great shot just like it is (the one you wished for a better zoom). Lovely pictures!

Your fruit picture made me hungry. The rest made me wish I had been there.

Looks like a wonderful time! I love the shot of the fruit - yum!
It does rather look like an eagle to me, but I'm not sure. It's a very cool picture, though!

IBHHostage, thanks. Thanks for dropping by too.

Messymimi, we had fun, sorry about making you hungry.

Sis, thanks. we weren't there long, but we had fun.
