We have such wonderful adventures on Guemes Island - and here are some of the critters we came across - and sometimes it is just a matter of seconds and we might not have seen them. They move in and out of sight so quickly.
Luckily I had the camera ready - dancing across the road in front of us, the deer was quickly gone into the dense woods.
We had never seen an eagle on Guemes Island - we saw two this time - but one flew off before I could get a photo. This one was more patient and waited on this limb for almost an hour.
And then there were turkeys. The babies appeared first - looking a lot like little bugs on the roadside - then Mama came for protection.
Come on - follow me - lets hide in the grass.
Calling to her babies Mama urged them to follow - though it took them some time to scramble through the thick roadside cover. It was fun to listen to her clucks and calls to the babies.
Wait for us - wait for us!!!!
And a BIG fish - oh oops - that's a mailbox - but what a fun mailbox critter.
And as we approached the ferry dock for our return home, here was a girl with her two ponies, sauntering along the road.
