Bald Faced Hornets

I harboured this Bald Faced Hornets Nest in a Giant Sequoia tree in the garden in back of my apartment. The immediate reaction to such nests is extermination, so I kept it secret to allow these pollinators/pest controllers to survive the summer. I succeeded and know of not a single sting suffered, though the area was not untravelled.

Willows Beach in July

Can't resist photographing those herons. This Great Blue Heron picked about in the shallows looking to spear small fish, but flew away empty beaked.

Long Absence

Following my usual pattern, I started this blog off with a bang - then fizzled.
Truly, I got busy with my summer job working as an onboard biologist for a whale watching outfit in Victoria. Not many shots from that, as the photographer/biologist duel role was hard to balance. Will post the whale shots I have, soon...

Now I'm in Nanaimo keeping my grandmother company and embarking on my freelance career. It's a little daunting having been out of the loop since right after graduation in June, but I'm looking forward to exploring a new photographic area.

Our Place: A Home for those who don't have one

I spent a morning with the people at the local gathering place
for the homeless community. Reverend Al Tysick runs
Our Place which provides food, health services, life skills training
and a place to be.

This one's going out to Shannon.

Wow, another long day.
We are putting together our annual student magazine.
The politics of publishing, who knew?
What's that you say? Everything's political?

Guess what these are

Let's say you believe in the 5 second rule
with regard to dropping food on the floor.
Let's also say you dropped a round cracker
on said floor, and it rolled for 3 seconds.
Would you include the rolling time in the
five seconds?
