Great blue heron, Canada geese, a saucy grey squirrel and September’s last hurrah !
During a trip to Andy Haydon Park in West End Ottawa I was able to snap photos of some of the wildlife. I think they may have been posing for me hoping I would be on my way, thinking “tourists”. It was a sunny afternoon, one of those lazy days when you just want to get away and forget your everyday life.
The great blue heron had his patience rewarded when he caught a big mudpout. He stood in the pond so still until he saw the right moment to capture his dinner. A magnificent bird.
This grey squirrel was napping in the afternoon sun and didn’t notice me at first. A very interesting photo.
Whoops! He caught me with my camera snapping his photo. What a character he is.
The park is full of Canada geese and when the heron crossed the pond to eat his fish the geese lined up in the water around him. I wonder why? Once he had swallowed his fish and taken off the geese separated and swam away.
