Three's company!

It was a cool morning a while back--- I saw these harmless garden snakes in a juniper, about 3 feet off the ground.  At first I thought it was two of them simply  uh...  getting to know each other.  But then I looked more carefully and saw that there were three of them intertwined--- probably to keep warm. There are NO harmful snakes in our part of the world, so I have learned not to jump (mostly) when I see them.

'Tis the moon!

There's a poof of steam venting at the base of Mt. St. Helens--- in the lower right corner.

The Sun says good morning to Mt. St. Helens. And thousands of feet below, the Toutle River reflects the morning light.

Just about to strike!

Ospreys are large birds of prey with a wingspan of nearly 6 feet.  This one is just a second away from grabbing a large fish.

Come here often?

I think the wildflowers talk to each other...
