Birds 1

At last the summer came in Vancouver on weekends. Yesterday I was walking in the Burnaby Mountain park.  The weather was sunny and I enjoyed it. I was trying to find birds to take pictures with them while my husband was reading a book. Finding birds was not easy because they hid in tall trees; nevertheless, I made some pictures.
Since I could take pictures from far, so I cropped them to see birds closer. As a result, noises  appeared  on some photos. I tried to fix it, so the result you can see below. Please, tell me what you think.

I don't know how they are called except  the Great Tit (Синицы) . If you know, please share with me.

Roses 1

While it's cold in Vancouver again, I've wanted to find a small piece of summer. I remembered  roses that I was taken in August last year. It was one of the first my experience with my new camera then. I started to learn how to use it with different settings, so some pictures a little exposed. Anyway I decided to show them to you.

University of British Columbia

Like everyone, I don't want to stay at home on weekends, so my husband and I decided to go for a walk and depart to University of British Columbia (UBC) where he studied. The campus is very beautiful. There are some buildings in a different style; I'm going to show you some of them right now.

Biodiversity Museum

There are some museums on the campus of  University of British Columbia , which everyone can visit. So, last weekend I decided to visit one of them. I chose the Biodiversity museum. The reason was that I bought the tickets to go there with discount. :) Now you'll see a few pictures from this museum  where are located different collections of birds, fish, plants and so on.

At first, of course, the blue whale skeleton attracted my attention because it's the largest animal in the world ever existed.
