Island's version of winter

December proves to be a fruitful month for photography so I think I better break it down by a few posts, not to pour too many shots in a single post. I will keep all the Christmas lights images for the following posts. So, here are a few highlights other than those lights.

This guy sat on the large tree watching me in a rather good-natured way - either he was not hungry or I didn't fit in his "I can carry this to my nest and eat later" idea.

A few shots on the full moon night. Breakwater...

... and Beacon Hill Park. They've added nice lighting to the fountain.

Now, this is how they sell Christmas tree here. First, with hanging tree is more or less typical:

Second, with flowers to plant, is not so much, for the rest of Canada at least:

Finally. an unusual series to finish this post. We had a centimeter or so of snow this night, not enough to stick to the ground but enough to create exotic photos of a hummingbird in the snow. We made a deal - I feed her, she poses for me.

Look forward to those Christmas lights!
