Bonus post today....yesterday I noticed that our Hawk nest from last year was active again. So with the morning light I headed out and set up the tripod to see if I could get some shots that were ok. I knew in advance though that with my camera they would not be top notch but I'm happy with the result. Here we have the Hawk sitting on the eggs and as the pictures progress there is the trade off, the stretch and the take off.... The Hawk family is especially important for us here in Victoria we have a very severe Rabbit infestation and they help with controlling of these Rodents...although cute they cause alot of damage in large numbers. UVIC is known for the rabbits that live everywhere on campus. Good maybe but damaging yes.
