Daily Photo – Sprites

By Heather / May 6, 2020

Walking on the trail I could hear them before I saw them. They were always anxious to talk and play and even walk with me a while. Very social but few people saw or heard them and they had little contact with the human world except to watch them go by. Dogs were a little […]


Daily Photo – The Rebel

By Heather / May 5, 2020

Standing straight and tall with his roots above ground is the rebel. Not for him to have his nether parts safely under the ground and out of sight. Not for him the norm of splaying his roots to get a better hold to the earth. When the wind blows he holds on with his nails […]


Daily Photo – River Otter Lunching

By Heather / May 4, 2020

Spotting something swimming in the ocean I waited with my camera posed to see what the depths would offer up. First, there was a nose that disappears followed by a curved back and tip of the tail as the otter dived again. Curious as to what he was up to, I sat on the beach […]


Daily Photo – The Eye of a Tulip

By Heather / May 3, 2020

Sometimes what’s on the inside is even more glorious than the out. As with this tulip that I photographed as the sun was shining through it. Making the petals almost seem transparent. The anthers on the stamen are ripe with pollen waiting for the bees to alight and spread the yellow gold dust. Reminding me […]


Daily Photo – Before Insulation

By Heather / May 2, 2020

Once upon a time in the west people came across the USA walking, on horseback, wagon train, stagecoach or by whatever means they could. Hearing that there was good grazing in Southern New Mexico, people claimed sections of grasslands and started to ranch. After living on the road for months or even years on end, […]


Daily Photo – Banana Slug

By Heather / May 1, 2020

I saw this banana slug while we were camping and I watch it carefully as it rushed (as only a slug can) toward a deadly mushroom. When I say deadly, it would kill a human if ingested but to the slug, it was pure ambrosia. As it slithered toward the fungi on a slimy trail […]


Daily Photo – Tide’s Out

By Heather / April 30, 2020

Flying over the west coast of Vancouver Island gives one a whole new perspective. The trees look like miniatures made for a hobby railway and the seaweed just before the waterline looks like a rusty ring around the tub. The green tinge of the sand and shallows that make everything look like its been iced […]


Daily Photo – Halo Violet

By Heather / April 29, 2020

This luscious little beauty is called a Halo Violet. Well actually it has a few names – Viola cornuta ‘Halo Violet’ (Horned Violet) to name a few. The gardening books say it’s a compact perennial that is sought after for its large dark violet-blue flowers with bright yellow centres and fragrant petals. It grows best […]


Daily Photo – Birth Mother

By Heather / April 28, 2020

Yesterday at the birdbath there appeared not one brown-headed cowbird but two. Why am I telling you this? Because… I wasn’t very happy. Now, most birds I welcome into my backyard giving them food and water but it’s hard to be selective about the birds you bring in. First, there are the starlings in the […]


Daily Photo – My What Long Eyelashes You Have

By Heather / April 27, 2020

Besides the punk haircut, the ostrich has the most gorgeous eyes and eyelashes. They are the kind that those of us with very little eye covering dream about. We go to a great extent (no pun intended) to plump and increase the length of our lashes. But I’m sorry ladies… the ostrich can bat their […]
