While out at a local lake on our kayaks we were treated to a very unexpected sight…a mink hunting crawfish. This guy/gal was working the shoreline and caught at least two crawfish while we watched from out in the lake on our kayaks. We had no idea mink lived along the shores of this lake and have never seen one before. Another reminder that those little moments sure can make your day.
Prairie Dog warming up the engines on a chilly spring morning with some wonderful solar power. Hope your enjoying the sunshine if you have it.
We think Wheaties whereas Pacific Oyster Catchers prefer limpets. We have always had a hard time getting close enough to oyster catchers to get a really good photograph but this day low tide and the lure of a beach teaming with limpets must have outweighed their concern for our presence. There were two Oyster Catchers each going to town on the limpet population on this rocky beach. They would pry them up and them swallow them whole. A true breakfast of champions.
An early morning conversation with the Stellar’s Jay. Yes I ‘m looking at you looking at me.

Miles, Coltrane, Evans…..or as Louie Armstrong once said…man if you gotta ask you don’t know.
