Weekend Expedition 9: Deer Lake Park

IMG_7376
This weekend, I went to Deer Lake Park  in Burnaby with Mike. It is not terribly far from Burnaby Lake Park, and in many respects has some quite similar habitat types.  Because it was sunny, we were hoping to find a lot of early insects out basking, but it remained cold and windy most of the day and the insects remained elusive. Some of the photographic highlights of the trip are to be found in the gallery below. For colours I seem to have shot lots of blues and pinks today, with some yellows thrown in for good measure.

Update: the putative amaurobiid is in fact a Hahniid, Cryphoeca exlineae.
