Olive loves to collect things. A barnacle encrusted twig is a perfect collectable, but, it's not really of interest unless she can bring it over for us to inspect. Once we have been brought onside as to its utility then, if it makes it home, it is added to the treasure trove.
Providing a rich tapestry of color the Harlequin Duck is a common visitor to the West Coast in winter. Even though they are brightly colored they can be shy making them difficult to spot.
Slipping out of the water to peer over the edge of the dock this River Otter's curiosity gets the better of him. I am sitting quietly on the other side of the dock while he fishes and eats under the dock. Eventually my presence became too interesting and he had to come up to see what I was up to. After checking me out he slipped into the water with his buddies and swam off.
Once a day Muffin goes for a walk. She bravely overcomes snow, puddles, tall grass, and the harassment of our dog to join us on our morning outing. Sometimes, if we think the weather is bad or there might be other dogs around we try to sneak away but she almost always catches us and comes trotting along for a grand walk. She looks like a cat but in almost all ways acts like a dog.
