(The thin vertical white ":scratches" are traces of falling snow flakes in these long exposures.)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An active beetle larva crawling atop the snow near the Route 85 trailhead.  It's a Soldier Beetle (Family Cantharidae).

 

 

Coleopterists from Taiwan, Romania, and the United Kingdom concurred on the identification within a day of my posting the photos.  Gotta love the web.

December 18th.

 

 

 

 

 

Note the sundog on the horizon to the left of center.  Read about sundogs.

 

 

Close up, you can see the rainbow colors of this sundog.

 

 

 

 

 

Four or five inches of new powdery snow yesterday.

Snow-eating fog.

 

 

Roland, I'm guessing this was Nash's print as there were slightly smaller prints (Nivea?) nearby.
