True Textures Tuesday

Besides the brown creeper and hairy woodpecker, I saw many other interesting things on my recent drive to Dalton Lake, both along the road going into the lake, and around the lake...

Yet another papery hive, this one up high on the face of a large rock...


An air bubble trapped in frozen water, with a ring shadow...


Feathers...from a junco?


A chipmunk looking for a drink...


A frozen drop of water on a strand of grass...


Icicles on strands of grass above the creek that runs out of Dalton Lake...


More icicles, these with zaggy ends...why?


The remains of a fireweed flower...


And another hive...


A branch bracelet made of peeled bark...


White water crowfoot in bloom on the lake! Field guide says it blooms through Sept...


And several small spotted fish in the lake. A juvie northern pike?

  3. I've never seen a frozen bubble;) Poor junco, something bad must have happened. The fireweed is certainly pretty, even at this stage.

  4. Last picture is a rainbow trout, Dalton Lake is a good fishing spot. Northerns are usually not in shallow water like that, they love it at Sheridan.
