A Steller's Jay at Mt. Pisgah Arboretum did a lot of scolding that day.

After viewing the Sawyer glacier in Tracy Arms fjord, our boat headed to Juneau. Partway there we spotted a brown bear on the rocky bank. He watched us watching him and then leisurely made his way across the rocks, then faded into the trees.

We visited the Mendenhall Glacier just ouside of Juneau, Alaska and saw a yellow warbler in the bushes near the visitor's center. A welcome spot of cheerful color on a cold and misty day.

While walking the Long Tom River nature trail I came across this bold, scolding squirrel. You could see curiosity and wariness at war, as he wanted to see me and run away at the same time.

We saw these three ladies lounging in their pool. That's what I imagined anyway.
