The fallen leaves and colours are a giveaway that this footage was from the fall. I just got to putting together a little montage now. Stanley Park is fantastic. I always look forward to seeing the raccoons. Cute enough to feed, it's hard to resist the urge.
I met prehistoric-looking Iguana on a recent trip. Look at those lips! They look pretty moist compared to the rest of him. My skin gets dry and scaly this time of year too... from the cold though, not the heat as he faces everyday.
An outing in Stanley Park never ceases to amaze me because I so often come across something odd and wonderful, and always when I least expect it. I met this fellow near the entrance to the park. His name is Kermit of course. What else would it be?!
These two look like they're up to no good and on the prowl to rustle up some trouble. I'm not sure if I'd think the same thing if they didn't have the masked bandit look going on, but I was a bit put off with them coming towards me. They turned out to be rather friendly and seemed to simply be looking for a handout. We all walked a bit through Stanley Park together.
Bird here is environmentally-friendly and into recycling. It took a decaying tree and made a house out of it. Upon further inspection, there were bits of string hanging out of the hole as well so I can only imagine the goldmine of things for padding that had been accumulated inside. Good thing birds don't have fire marshals - there's no way insulation of fluff, string and assorted bits of potentially hazardous flammable materials would pass any fire code.
Last weekend was a get together of doggies galore at the Abbotsford Tradex for the Lower Mainland Dog Fanciers of BC. The fur was flying, but it was limited mostly to the grooming sections.
It's that time of year... get your muck boots out of the closet and head down to the local pumpkin patch. I spent a few hours at Aldor Acres in Langley last weekend; hay rides, petting zoo and a little bit o' dancing too.
