From the forest floor ~
Blacktail deer shed antlers,
bracket or shelf fungus that grow on trees,
a Monkey puzzle tree cone...
more of the fungal growths, elk teeth, a deer hoof
and two porcupine quills.
A little lucite case containing moss and a Swallowtail Butterfly
and a moth, another moth on the book (left)
and an interesting seed pod (right).
Another shelf holds a few odds and ends ~
a Moon Rock from Idaho,
a bit of sheep wool, gathered from the fence along
our lane, left by the neighbors sheep,
and two whole shed snake skins ~ rare to find
an entire skin! Even the eyes shed!
Dragonfly on lichen from apple trees
small paper wasp nest

Why not stop over and see what others did this weekend?
Gentleman Farmer asked if I would join him
for a morning of grouse hunting. Of course
I couldn't refuse. We drove up into the hills
near where I grew up. We didn't see one grouse,
but enjoyed the scenery just the same!
I've traveled these hills for nearly 50 years
hunting, camping, Christmas tree hunting, and
snow sledding and tubing with friends and
family. I thought perhaps you might enjoy
what we saw, too!
eyes on such spectacular beauty!
(blogger has turned my pic again!)
Golden ferns in their seasonal finery
An old 'burn' that reminded me of the tundra
And then we came here!
I even came to the edge and held the camera over to snap this photo!
(though I couldn't look!)
More shots just holding the camera over ~
I'm kind of amazed that they turned out so well!
(I looked at them when I got home!)
