Between Showers

Lots of rain again this weekend, but I managed to get in a short hike at Belfair while Leslie entertained friends from Portland.

Though I missed the best shot of the day, a Green Heron flying about six feet over my head, I finally managed to get a clear shot of this guy, which is most likely a Swainson Thrush, or Salmonberry Bird, judging from this.

It was also the first day I’ve seen a Two-Tailed Tiger Swallowtail when I had a camera in hand:

Of course, even if you don’t happen to get a good wildlife picture there are beautiful flowers like these at the visitors’ center that make it easy by standing still:

In other words, it’s hard to have a bad day at the Theler Wetlands in Belfair.
