Wildlife spots....

I finally got behind the wheel today, and drove us into Gatineau Park for a picnic, lake swim and short hike. Lovely jubbly day and on the wander back to the car we spotted a Fisher. It was a clear view but all too brief so no photos. Our 'Mammals of Ontario' book has this to say though:

" For the lucky naturalist, meeting a wild Fisher is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The rest of us must content ourselves with the knowledge that this reclusive animal remains a top predator in coniferous wildlands."

Ooh-la-la. Knitting on the beach (sleeve one almost done); lake swimming with vultures soaring above and a once-in-a-lifetime spot - hooray for Sunny Saturdays.
