We went to roll up the “door” of the shelter we use for odds and ends in our yard, and dislodged a wee treefrog that was under the overlap at the top of the door. It was quite happy to sit on my hand for a while, and actually had to be gently persuaded to get off. I put it back under the overlap, as seems to be a favourite place for the little guys.

Look who turned up

Our pond has had some visitors recently. This is the third time I’ve seen these wood ducks, so I’m hopeful that they are nesting in the area. They are very shy; it’s hard to get photos as even when you try from inside the house and are sneaky and trying hard not to be noticed they seem to have an incredible ability to spot you. (This photo was snatched as they were doing their patented nopenopenope exit.)

Herring are running

By the time we got there the sea lions had gorged and were mostly just hanging out airing their armpits. 
A couple did come close by shore to check out Our Dog. Our Dog barked. Sure told THEM.

Unfocused crocus

I took a bunch of macro pictures of flowers today that were deliberately not quite in focus (as apposed to the ones that should be and aren’t) and quite liked the results. Here’s one of them; I think I’ll do more.

The bridge idea that will not die

c7ixj8qvaaazso6Well, this tweet is interesting. It’s from a CHEK News reporter; I assume he’s sitting in a news conference somewhere.

Not that there’s much likelihood such a proposal will come to pass, given the Conservatives’ electoral standing in BC. But I suppose it gives them an election talking point to try to show they are forward-thinking and different from the other parties.

UPDATE: yes, it’s a real proposal. Here’s a news article about it, and here’s the plank in the Conservative platform.
