See why I love the beach?

Last morning at the beach, so Snowy and I were out for our walk by 6 am (thank goodness
that's just going off DST).

Lights still on at the pier



The trawlers are already out with lights on



Low tide



Photographer's assistant (Snowy) waiting for the sunrise



Gulls like it, too



Reflections



And it's up!

Monarch butterfly migration at the NC beach

We saw a few Monarchs when we arrived on Sunday...but they're all over the yard here today! I first tried getting
some shots from the deck because the bushes are probably 10-12 feet high. But I wasn't satisfied, so i went down
in the yard. All these shots were taken over my head--anywhere from a foot or two to at least four or five.

We have a beautiful Carolina blue sky today..and this guy was willing to pose, somewhat shyly.




These two were doing what they need to do...it takes four generations of Monarchs to make the round trip migration.



This one was definitely feeding on the flowers



And this was the best shot I could get of open wings.

At the Vancouver Aquarium

Just a few shots.




Beluga whale--no dorsal fin, presumably an adaptation to make swimming beneath ice easier




Splendid garden eel



Chester, the false killer whale



Sea lions (females) poking through ice to find fish snacks



Do you see the seahorses?





There was a small Amazon jungle exhibit that included wildlife other than fish.



Blue fronted Amazon parrots




Red ibis




Sleepy sloth--napping high up in a tree
