Yes, we heard about it too, but here in the Fraser Valley in southern BC, we didn't feel it at all. Thanks for your concern for everyone.

If it was a month or so earlier, it could be courtship, but July 23 is too late for that in the Cascade Mtns where this is photographed. Could be a juvenile and an adult but it was interesting to watch whatever they were.

Yes, Alice, they sure weren't worrying about me and my camera! I watched them for quite a while!

When they are concentrating on something else, it becomes easier to get good pictures!
