Weekend Expedition 16: A Grab Bag

Probably the coolest find of teh weekend, this Rough-skinned Newt (Taricha granulosa) was the first I have seen on the Mainland.

Probably the coolest find of the weekend, this Rough-skinned Newt (Taricha granulosa) at Maplewood Park was the first I have seen on the Mainland.

This Weekend Expedition is actually another composite of three trips:

1) to Burnaby Lake with Mike, Catherine, Viorel and Tavi, stalking the elusive goslings

2) back to Hastings Park in the morning for some early insect shots

3) finally making it out to Maplewood Park in North Vancouver, accompanied by Adam Blake.

It was an exhausting weekend, with fine weather and good company, so I think I will let the images do most of the talking here!

  1. These are beautiful pictures. Love the rough-skinned newt!
    Love to see your weekend finds. Your beautiful dandy-lion looks so much nicer than the weedy ones I pulled up this weekend. Yours has personality and serenity, mine have deep claws and mean hair! All in the eyes of the beholder…..Thanks
