Nursery
Life goes on ... When a tree dies, it comes alive, more so than in its life. Living trees are made up of about 5% living tissue, but when certain species die, they become literal garden beds of new life. These otherwise “dead” trees contain five times more ...

Past their sell-by date?
Hard-working trees: Woodpecker snack bar. Also ant, beetle, spider hideout and winter quarters. Future nest site (under construction). Critter bridge, creek dam, flotsam collector. Will likely host huckleberry bushes where the sun can reach them, next year.

By water's edge
The trail along the south side of the Campbell River is well advertised and busy, leading from just north of the townsite to Elk falls and the popular suspension bridge just below the hydro facility. On a warm weekend, foot traffic is dense with joggers and...

Shallow Campbell River
When its hot, the river calls ... The Campbell River, from a logging bridge. Zoom in; there are three fishermen and a rubber dinghy upriver. The river is quite shallow here, as it widens and spreads into a maze of creeks below the canyon. The dinghy approac...

Dreaming of icebergs
It's too hot. Too #$@&%*! hot. Granted, for the rest of the world, we have it good here in Campbell River, but it's all what you're used to, and what you have ways to cope with. Today, it reached 31 degrees Celsius here. We're lucky; over on the mainland, n...

Under a maple tree
The maples are glorious this year. Even the bare trunks. And the winged seeds. I'm tempted to try climbing this. Like little birdies almost ready to leave the nest. It's cooler under the trees, but the bush is parched and crackly. There's a wildfire burning...

10:30 at night. I went to draw my curtains, and found a small moth sleeping on the outside of the window. Grabbed the camera, dragged over a chair, climbed up, got one shot of the moth. Lucky shot. Because there was only one. And the cat scrambled through t...

Trees in a hurry
I posted this on the Facebook page, "The Worst Bird Photographs Ever" . Then I decided that I liked it, blurry or not. So here it is. Racing trees. And a flying gull. Taken from a bridge over the Campbell River. I panned with the gull, and almost, but not q...

Thistles and critters
A patch of thistles between the blackberry bushes (with burdock alongside; it was a prickly field!) was a-buzz with flying and crawling critters. Skipper, and a syrphid fly. I think the skipper is Ochlodes sylvanoides, the Woodland Skipper, very common here...
