Natural Splendour of the Arrow Lakes

Wednesday’s Photos

Reflections, Lake Impressions and Wildlife

Today’s focus is on the beauty of the Arrow Lake on, in and near the water. Reflections are forever fascinating, especially when you watch them in a light breeze, which adds motion to the wavy water surface.  While relaxing at the beach on Father’s Day last Sunday, mama merganser with her little brood came by close enough for me to take a picture of the same merganser family, we had observed the week before. I captured the two bears on my camera a couple of years ago also in the spring. It is quite rare to see two different coloured bears together. Enjoy.A-IMG_6352A-IMG_6382A-IMG_6386A-IMG_6393A-bears

  1. Wow, is that a grizzly and a black bear together? Or just two different colored black bears?

    The photographs capture the beauty and serenity of your area, making it look like a paradise on earth.

      1. That’s what I figured. Plus grizzlies have a different shaped head, as I recall. I’ve never seen a brown “black” bear before!

  2. Peter, your photos are excellent and shine with the beauty of Arrow Lake, Those bears were close but seemed preoccupied with other things than you. Enjoyed all the photos. Thank you for sharing.

      1. They were very close, perhaps 20 m or so. I stepped out of the car to get a better angle to shoot from. Bears are generally not aggressive, unless they have cubs.

      1. Thank you for your interest, Peter.
        You should be able to follow my blog just like any other. When you open one of my posts, in the right lower corner, a rectangular sign will show up that says “follow.” If you click it, that should work.
        You could also type in tanjabrittonwriter into the search function of your reader, and my blog should show, together with a follow box.
        Please let me know if that does not work. I am not aware of any problems following my blog.
        Thanks again.
        Tanja

  3. Splendid captures again, Peter, amazing how you captured the bears, and of course my favorite is the reflection image. Thank you Peter.

  4. “Reflections are forever fascinating…” Indeed they are, and the rhomboid shape created by the dead tree and its reflection works quite well. Also effective, as you said, are the wind-whipped ripples on the lake’s surface.
