Winter Wren
This is the first time I've managed to get a photo of this species. I've seen them before and they are willing to get close to people, but they just don't stop moving.
Species: Troglodytes hiemalis (Winter Wren)

Spotted Towhee
There are now shortage of these little birds squawking the brush.
Species: Pipilo maculatus (Spotted Towhee)

Red Breasted Sapsucker
I was hoping this was a Pileated woodpecker because I have seen them before but never photographed one.
Species: Sphyrapicus ruber (Red-breasted Sapsucker)

There were Grey Squirrels as well as the Douglas Squirrels.
Species: Tamiasciurus douglasii (Douglas's squirrel)

Red Huckleberry
I'm always a little worried picking red fruit.
Species: Vaccinium parvifolium (Red Huckleberry)

Oval Leaf Blueberry
It's been a long dry summer - the trees don't have much fruit.
Species: Vaccinium ovalifolium (oval-leaved blueberry)

Nara Touching Tiny Green Urchin
I was really impressed they found such a small urchin. Of course, they must start small but when you normally only see adult ones.
Species: Strongylocentrotus droebachiensis (Green Sea Urchin)

Claira With Ochre Star
A few years ago, we had a huge outbreak of a sea star wasting disease. I'm surprised there are large examples of stars now.
Species: Pisaster ochraceus (Ochre Star)

Claira Touching Blood Star
These stars are great - bright colour and really recognizable arm length to radius.
Species: Henricia leviuscula (Blood Star)

Milky Way And Lighthouse At Stanley Park
I saw a post on the internet on how to bring out the milky way in very light polluted locations. I tried their procedure and sure enough - you can see it a little bit. There is also a meteor in this shot - the perseid meteor shower was starting.

Feint Milky Way Above Trees
The contrast/lighting difference between the trees and the sky is quite difficult to overcome. I settled for a bit of "marine fog".

Beaver Lake Full Of Lilies
This is a bizarre picture - this is about 8 images seamed together because I only had a 400mm lens. At the time, I think this was the largest flower display in all of Vancouver and it was completely natural.
Species: Nymphaea odorata (Fragrant Water Lily)

Female Common Merganser
This bird really stood out in the crowd - the beak is vivid red, the feet the bright orange and the spikey brown head is also unusual.
Species: Mergus merganser (Common Merganser)

Male Common Merganser
Green head seems common for ducks (Mallards obviously, but also American Widgeon's and wood ducks). In my mind, the female is just as showy as the male.

Siwash Rock Making Star Trails
This is a 100 image, 30 seconds an image time lapse. I was planning on stacking them and lightening them to get star trails but the clouds flying by made that much harder than I anticipated.

This is a 15 frames per second video.

Siwash Rock Star Trails Missing Clouds
This image is 30 second exposures stacked. Because the clouds are generally brighter than the stars, I had to mask out the clouds in each exposure. There are 100 frame here because my camera stops taking photos at 100 exposures if you just hold the button down.

Two Wet Mallard Chicks
I really wonder about Mallard Chicks at Stanley Park. They immediately walk up to people hoping for hand outs - they seem to have no fear. I wonder if they also walk up to predators.
Species: Anas platyrhynchos (Mallard)

Marsh Cinquefoil
The big leaves belong to a different plant - I've identified the species of the flowers as Marsh Cinquefoil. It has rather narrow leaves.
Species: Comarum palustre (marsh cinquefoil)
