Natures Crystal Chandelier

While other states have been hit by cold weather, Anchorage
was blessed with warmer temperatures.
I'm always grateful for nice warm Chinook winds.
Usually when we have cold weather, our icy temperatures
drift south to cause havoc on states not
used to frigid temperatures.
It was so nice and warm that all the snow melted off my lawn in
Cooper Landing.
Now that's an excellent winter for me!!!

Spending Time With the Neighbors...

Yesterday I spent some quality time with this female moose and her calf!
She was browsing the crabapple trees in our neighborhood. 
I'm sure she was feeling the effects of all the fermented apples,
because I was able to get really close to her.  No need for a
zoom lens, just a car and a window did the trick.
I felt pretty safe in my car and she seemed more interested
in eating fermented apples.
She gave me a quick look when I took this photo, checked on
her calf and then went on with whats really important…

37 Degree Heat Wave

It actually reached 40 degrees in Cooper Landing this week.  Pretty amazing 
temperatures for this time of the year.  The average is 15 degrees, so I'm loving
every minute!   Hope your all having a nice winter....

Color in December

Hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!
I can't believe it's already December, 
my time fly's!!!  
I went out in search of some color this weekend…
I'm always amazed at my finds…
Even with snow, tiny pops of leftover fall foliage  
brought a smile to my face!!!  
I hope you enjoy it, as much as I did!

It's been a long time since I last posted on my blog…
My days are filled with work and any spare moments I have
I try to spend photographing the beauty of nature.

Hope this post finds you all well.
I will try to check in more often!

Until next time stay safe!

Busy Bees!!

We are having the most amazing summer
and the bees are taking full
advantage of it!
This one is working my Lambs Ear plant.
I love all the texture.

Yellow Warbler

These sweet little yellow birds are only about five
inches long.  They also don't sit still very well.
I think I must have taken 50 photos of him
before I finally got one semi ok photo.
It's hard to believe Alaska has such a cute
yellow bird in the summertime.
