attack of the birds!

I'm kind of a fan of these photo essay type blog entries.....but i keep promising to write something and so far that's not really happening. hmm....
Well this past weekend was Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada which meant fewer classes to attend at school, more studying (for midterms) to do and more time to kill. I've been feeling kind of down lately because I haven't had the energy to get out and go to the beach. It makes me sad because it's one of the few things I can do where I'm 100% free from the stresses of school and home (at least in the physical sense). On Saturday, I knew the weather was supposed to be nice so I got the bus as close as I could to the beach known here as Spanish Banks. I knew the tide would be out, so I wore my gum boots - got some strange looks from people at the bus stop - and spent my morning wading around in the shallow water taking pictures. I was trying to photograph a seagull at one point when it let out a horrible shriek (I've never heard such strange sound come from an animal before!) and all the water fowl within my sights range took off. I was a little confused as to why and it turned out there was a huge bald eagle nearby which flew over to where I was standing and started circling around my head from maybe 20-30 ft away then just as I was starting to get a little anxious about this bird's intentions it dove down right in front of me, not more than 20 ft away and caught a fish!

On a morning like this how could you not go out and explore?


I'm not afraid to get my feet wet!


or muddy...


The birds are out and strutting their stuff...




When along comes....

I'll write something a little more exciting and substantial later (maybe even tonight yet) but for now here's a few images I've captured in this past week in one of my favorite places.
