This is a collection of a few images, none of which had its own posting in January.
A flock of geese is seen flying in front of the Purcell Mountains.
In case anyone wondered why it is called a Red-tailed Hawk….
This is a rarity: a visit of a Pacific Loon (in non-breeding plumage). This species is not the same as the Common Loon frequently seen around the Lake.
These are a few elk out of a much larger herd.
Coyote in the mist
Six Trumpeter swans visit the West Arm with three days left in the month.
These are frost flowers. This type of frost does not result from vapour cooling, but from vapour mixing. Rather than blanketing ice crystals over the surface, it prompts isolated patches of crystals floating above the ice alongside the Lake.
