With the price of oil getting to a ridiculous price most of us can't stop complaining about the price of gasoline. There are those among us that have a steady oil supply all their own ... They just have to be able to reach it as this critter displays all too well ...

Back to Nanaimo River flats today to see if I could get any better photos of the Short Eared Owl. Took around 100 photos all of which went directly into the bit bucket but on the way home I came across this critter playing in the center of the river. I haven't seen a sea otter this close up since I was steelhead fishing back in the early '70s. Not a lot of fish in the river at this time of year so I wonder what brought him this far up river. Like me .... curiosity?

Finally back posting simply because I bought a new camera and since there aren't any mushrooms out to collect/photograph in January I thought "what the hell" I would wander down to the Nanaimo River and see what was photogenic. (Warning run-on sentence alert) Both the photos are of the Short Eared Owl that spends a couple of months or so cleaning up most of the mice on the flats. For the camera interested types they were taken with a 5d mk III with the Canon 100-400 f4 and 1.4 Tamron extender.
You'd almost think I had ruffled this guys feathers from the look of him ....
