One morning while we were out walking along our regular path along the Brunette River, we had a couple of interesting encounters.
A blue heron! We'd never seen one on this path before (there are a bunch at the nearby Burnaby Lake Park though). It was really close too, just across the river bank. I tried to capture it on photo, but for some reason, all I was getting was blurry shots.
Then, a big fish! We'd never seen fish in the river before, so it was pretty neat. The fish was swimming hard against the current, and looked old and tired.
Being city folk, these sightings were pretty interesting to us.
