    The oldest living organism in the world is a single grove of Quaking Aspen trees in Utah called Pando. It is basically one massive 80,000 year old root system; the grove of trees are really about 47,000 stems!

    Frost Flowers on Gun Lake
    Quote Gun Lake in British Columbia,Canada - frost flowers.

    When these photographs were taken "the air was extremely cold and extremely dry, colder than the ocean surface. When the air gets that different from the sea, the dryness pulls moisture off little bumps in the ice, bits of ice vaporize, the air gets humid - but only for a while. The cold makes water vapor heavy. The air wants to release that excess weight, so crystal by crystal, air turns back into ice, creating delicate, feathery tendrils that reach sometimes two, three inches high, like giant snowflakes. The sea, literally, blossoms."

    Eye of the Moon

    Quote In this perfectly timed shot we see the moon through the North Window arch at Arches National Park in Utah. The park is located in Eastern Utah and is known for preserving over 2,000 natural sandstone arches. The park is 76,679 acres (31,031 ha) in area. Its highest elevation is 5,653 feet (1,723 m) at Elephant Butte, and its lowest elevation is 4,085 feet (1,245 m) at the visitor center. Forty-three arches have collapsed due to erosion since 1970.

    Why is the sea slug green?
    The photosynthetic sea slug Elysia chlorotica appears like a dark green leaf as a result of retaining chloroplasts from its algal prey, Vaucheria litorea, in cells lining its digestive tract.

    Lovely thread and some good pictures here. I most appreciate the ones taken by members themselves. Nature photography is such a wonderful way to connect with our surroundings, and although there is not a lot of nature where I live, I make myself a habit to go and take photographs whenever I can. I love it. This is my Photo Galery page (scroll down the page) :
