Carp fishing in the Okanagan.
The lilies in the background had been a magnet for the Carp and I had taken full advantage of the opportunity. Sitting on the shingle had been a pleasure as the evening sun went down.
Each tree had been used as a vantage point for an Osprey as it systematically checked every spot for an easy meal. Coots and various ducks had fought their way across the weed beds in attempts to gain the best places to rest up and sample the free offerings from the weed.
A Coyote could be seen up in the vineyards and occasionally a Muskrat would raise it’s head to surprise the ducks.
But the surprised widlife was nothing compared to mine, when in the early morning I returned to find this strange bird of prey sitting in the very swim I had vacated only a few hours earlier.
It seems the propeller had snapped and the plane came down. Everyone was ok.
