Stu and I headed out before we opened up this morning, and enjoyed an hour "just catching the breeze".
As we took off from the dock we spotted this eagle at the far end of the lake. It was just a speck that we followed as it flew up the length of the lake... accomplishing that even before we reached half way across. Brereton is 8km long and 4.5km wide. It landed in this tree on the far north end of the lake. Amazing how fast the eagle flew the hole length of the lake.
The other morning Stu and I were looking down river and he noticed the water swirling and then saw a HUGE head pop above the service. It looked prehistoric from where we were standing. We realized it was a large male snapping turtle thrashing about.
More swirling and then two backs popped above the surface.
This went on for some time.
More swirling in the water and then two backs motionless….
While they were resting Stu walked down along the shore to get a closer look and got this amazing shot of the little lady as she swam to shore.
That’s a first for us. We have never witnessed the matting rituals of the Snapping Turtles before.
.......an adventure around every corner at Inverness Falls!
On a drive through the park, Stu and I came upon this Blue Heron. A picture at every turn.
Wishing you all a great Weekend!
