There are certainly lots of reasons to love Vancouver Island and the plethora of terrific photo opportunities is one of them.
CHEK News viewers Patricia and Robert Stenseth sent us this great picture from the Cowichan River Estuary.
Robert was trying to get a photo of a Cedar Waxwing when this young Swallow landed on his shoulder and quickly moved to the camera lens.
He says it was the most incredible nature moment of his life.
