Bull Chewing
I had a bag full of 40 speed film Velvia slide film and a few rolls of high speed black and white. It was late enough in the day that high speed was pretty much the only choice.

We are right off the parking lot to the Cave and Basin Interpretive Center (which we didn't in the end visit).

White Tailed Ptarmigan From Side
I believe this is part way though the molt from winter (white) to summer (like the rock).

Ptarmigan
I'm calling this a Male because of the Red Eye combs.

Live Abalone

Mike caught a live one!  The holes on the top allow water to flow over the gills.  I was
surprised by the number of stalks on the body.  My guide book says this animal can
live up to 50 years - we returned it to the ocean shortly after I took this picture.

Seals on Belle Islands

Pretty much snack sized Killer Whale snacks.  They were on the same chain of
Islands as the Sea Lions, but they were in a separate area.

Species: Phoca vitulina (Harbor Seal)

Eight Spotted Skimmer
I was surprised how lazy this insect was given that it wasn't the early part of the day.
Species: Libellula forensis (Eight-spotted Skimmer)

Female American Wigeon
I did some research into Eurasian vs American Female wigeon - the head colours on the American are more distinct compared to the Eurasian.
Species: Anas americana (American Wigeon)

Black Katy Chiton
I love how Sea Sacs (Halosaccion glandiforme) has chosen to colonize the plates on this Chiton.
Species: Katharina tunicata (Black Katy Chiton), Halosaccion glandiforme (Sea Sacs)

Mussels And Barnacles
Probably California Mussels (Mytilus californiensis), growing in with Leaf Barnacle (Pollicipes polymerus). These two spieces usually have large homogenous colonies - so it looks like the Mussels are overgrowing the Barnacle colony.
Species: Mytilus californianus (California mussel), Pollicipes polymerus (Goose Barnacle or Goose Neck Barnacle)

Mule Dear
Those big ears could hear me from at least as far as I could see them. They aren't as tame as the deer on Pender Island (you can almost pet those).

Stretching A Wing
This surprised me. You can see one leg is off the branch too. Sad about the lighting, but with wildlife, you rarely get to choose.

Sitting Puffed Up
Given that he was in the sitting phase of his day, he really was quite animated. I thought at this point he would get up and fly away, but he just moved a bit and continued with napping.
