Visibility was officially down to 1.6 km due to the forest fires in B.C. The light was similar to what you would find at sundown. The closest fires are about 900 km away!
Even though it was sunny with no clouds in the sky, you would never know it!
This next shot is taken from a distance of 0.5 km, In the Athabasca River Valley.
I did get some small critter pictures. I couldn't find the big ones
Not sure what this beetle is. I think it is just a common, black ground beetle. I have exhausted my resources on this.
