Ferry Terminal

As always, be prepared for a wait. To get to Saltspring without going to Vancouver Island, you
have to have reservations - the ferries are fully booked.

At Terminal

At Tsawassen terminal, to take the ferry to Victoria (we will then take a ferry to
Pender Island from there). We passed a huge amount of stopped traffic on the road to
the terminal, as apparently the windows ticketing system had crashed (surprise!)

Sea Lions on the Rocks

These big beasts were hanging out on the break water at Sea Island.

Belted_Kingfisher This is a three image composite (in photoshop). I don't own a long lens so this is the best I can do.

Peregrine Falcon Shooting against a bright background doesn't help. This bird never really got close and of course it was moving fast.

Northern Shoveler I love the huge bill on these guys. You can see the small, comb-like structures on the edge that it uses for filtering food out of the water. I haven't seen that on bird before.
