Random Photos

Here are a bunch of random photos. Feel free to reload the page to see some more!

A random taste of photos:
Claude the albino alligator, submerged under water. Waimea Canyon, also known as the Grand Canyon of the Pacific. Petrified wood appears as colorful stone.
Ground squirrel, alert in the scrub brush. A black and white cat suns herself on a roof. Danger sign near Wailua Falls. Locals use it for target practice. It reads: “Danger. Do not go beyond wall. State of Hawaii Department of Land & Natural Resources.”
Closeup of a blue dragonfly on a pinecone. An old decrepit abandoned building in the toxic dead tree zone near Mammoth Mountain. (It was probably an emergency snow cabin or something.) Natural CO2 outgassing from a magma body beneath Mammoth Mountain asphyxiated more than 100 acres of trees near Horseshoe Lake in the early 1990s. The gasses become concentrated to deadly levels in enclosed structures such as cabins. A roll of hay in a green field backed by trees, mountains, and fluffy white clouds.
Petrified wood in this desolate landscape has been fossilized and turned to stone. A \ A black and white cat suns herself on a roof.
Tufa backed by snow-dotted mountains at Mono Lake. Dripping mushrooms in green grass. This building reminded me of an old decrepit church. (It was probably an emergency snow cabin or something.)

The gasses become concentrated to deadly levels in enclosed structures such as cabins.
A vacant paper wasp nest held in my fingertips. The nest is constructed of open hexagonal cells in which the young develop. Sap stalactites dripping from a tree limb, translucent and silhouetted against a background of blue sky. Chihuahua skull on a black background.

Closeup of Shoshone Falls (sometimes called the Red and gray rock cliffs and towers in Sedona. A black and purple wasp-like creature with red legs and a long stinger or ovipositor (egg-laying organ). Possibly a female Ichneumon wasp -- Pimpla?  If someone knows for sure, I\'d love to be enlightened!
A black and white spotted beetle on a morning glory leaf.  (If you know the species, please let me know and I\'ll add the info!) Tufa towers in Mono Lake. White Sands National Monument, New Mexico.
