I just got back from a bit of a last-minute trip to visit my parents out in BC. It ended up being a lot of fun, and I saw a lot of wildlife! Including these guys, that are always hanging out at the marina down the street from my parents:
That one seal just wanted to show us his belly, he floated like that most of the time we were watching them. Until he was bored with that type of upside down, and tried out this direction:
I also saw a lot of deer, although not in my parents’ garden like usual. This year they’re fenced up like Fort Knox with deer fencing, and dad has a stick by the back door for if one manages to get in and he has to chase it. Yes, deer are cute, but they eat all the plants that they’ve worked so hard to grow, or just spent a bunch of money on at the nursery. Thus, the entire perimeter is fenced now, the hedges have a layer of black plastic fencing, and most of it is higher than my head, because deer can jump. The garden also ended up very stinky one day after dad sprayed some deer repellant around. It was definitely a repulsive smell, so I’m going to assume it will work!
There was a baby bunny in the back yard too, but he also got chased off.
