A random taste of photos:
Macro of a natural pink salt marsh. Nene, or Hawaiian goose. The official state bird. This one was very friendly and came close, showing off and looking for a handout. The rugged green cliffs of the Nā Pali coast, seen from a helicopter.
An empty sun-bleached snail shell. Kasha-Katuwe Tent Rocks National Monument in New Mexico. A frame of \
Trees traverse the hills in Pacheco State Park, California. A male seagull perched on a light post against a pale foggy sky. A hut constructed of driftwood and seaweed on the beach.
A boardwalk bridge spans stagnant green water in a salt marsh. Two people cast shadows onto shallow water at the Alviso salt marshes. A depth marker in a salt marsh shows stagnant green water to be lower than usual.
Bright yellow-green leaves against a dark black background. This building reminded me of an old decrepit church. (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 purple African daisy with a blue and yellow center, on a blurred green background (portrait orientation).

High voltage tower reflected in the water of a pink salt marsh.
A collection of bones and stones on a round post surrounded by red rock. Palm trees against a blue sky. Colorful landscape surrounds a stagnant green river near the Environmental Education Center in Alviso, California.
Yellow and black warning sign with a skull and crossbones that says, Wildflowers dot a field under a bright sky in Pacheco State Park, California. Crystal Crag and broken rocks face off at TJ Lake or Lake Barrett (not sure which).
A green, red, and black spotted bug on a Celosia leaf.  (If you know the species, please let me know and I\'ll add the info!  Maybe some kind of shield beetle?) Petrified wood in this desolate landscape has been fossilized and turned to stone. A white mushroom on a fallen tree near Mammoth Lakes.
A green, red, and black spotted bug on a Celosia flower.  (If you know the species, please let me know and I\'ll add the info!  Maybe some kind of shield beetle?) A red flower near Mammoth Lakes. It resembles Indian Paintbrush, but I\'m not sure what it is. Miner\'s Lettuce.
