insects, birds and slugs, large and small mammals, marine mammals and the
The Insects have
always fascinated me and I could spend all day watching them go about their
daily business. The Island has many wild and interesting insects, from trap door
long winged conehead crickets.
The birds that live
on and visit the Island are quite varied and very numerous, photographing them
is a great pastime and when you get that photo that you have been trying to get,
its very satisfying.
The fishing on and
around the Island is good, both fresh and saltwater species and the variety of fish in our ocean
incredible, we are one of the great dive destinations of the world.
deer, elk and bears are awesome and numerous but the little animals are just as
incredible. We have some rare ones too. We have the Vancouver Island Marmot and the
Wolverine for example.
Then there are the
Dolphins and Whales, Like the Orca and Humpback Whales or the Grey Whale and
sometimes you even get to
see Fin Whales.
