MORE vacation photos -- the wildlife edition

Warning: No corgi content; just vacation wildlife photos.

They sure grow some interesting slugs up there in the Northwest!

Barn swallow teenagers, about to fly the nest.  Pointed out to me by the camp organizer at San Juan Park on San Juan Island.

A fox risking being roadkill to go after some roadkill.

We never tired of seeing deer.  And never failed to get as excited as if they were elephants!

Remnants of dead wildlife; photos taken for my chiropractor daughter who assures me we have many of the same bones as whales.

Speaking of whales...the best photo I managed to get.

Ooops!  Wrong kind of wildlife I guess.  My nephew meeting one of the locals in Scotland. He, his family, grandmother and aunt were in Scotland the week we were in the San Juans.

I think they are called water sprites--yes?

Twins, with mom right behind.

Pond on San Juan Island.

A seal -- or sea lion -- can't tell if there are ears or not.

A slitherer of some sort

A real one on the left, and a bronze one on the right.  On Orcas Island.

Near the Anacortes Ferry dock.
