I am posting a couple of my favorite photos that
were taken in Alaska.
The first photo is of a male Grosbeak. I love his beautiful
raspberry red color. The females are a very soft yellowish green color.
They really blend well with the moss this male is sitting on.
I'm spending a lot of time outside, so I am very
busy taking nature photos. These photos
will get me through our long dark winters.
I found this squirrel skull this last weekend on one of my walks.
I think it's so beautiful. Those tiny little back teeth.
A wonderful skull laying on a white bed of
caribou moss with cranberry flowers close at its side.
When I was walking around in one of the mountain passes I found
this tiny little bee fly resting on these magnificent leaves.
I love taking pictures of mushrooms. This is a brain morel,
it's very toxic and should never be eaten. It's a
wonderful example. When you cut these
mushrooms in half you will not find the
empty chamber that an edible morel has.
You can see how late our flowers are compared to many other
countries and states. This photo is of a flowering mountain ash
Below is one of my favorite photos. Meet a tiny baby squirrel named "socks".
Socks, was found by my daughter in a mud puddle just before a cat picked him
up. It's hard to resist a sweet face like his!!! What a sweetie!
I have seen a lot of these very tiny blue butterfly's this year.
This one is about the size of a dime.
Alaska's state flower is the, "Forget-me-not"
I have a lot of them planted around my house.
And last but not least is one of my favorite bugs, it's a little snout weevil.
I think he looks so prehistoric, he is amazing!!
I really hope you enjoyed these photos. I love taking photos for you!!
Take care of yourselves!!
