It's rather cold so I haven't been out much. But I still have a lot of photos. For now, a few that are interesting to me.
I don't know what kind of berries these are, but I thought their red color combined with the yellow of what may be lichen was striking.
Taken at the beginning of the month at Tualatin Hills Nature Park. The berries were just opposite of this.
While the pond there had ice on the surface. I would guess now it's pretty much covered completely.
At a different place on a different day. A bit of rain and cold made me think twice about walking on a few trails at Cooper Mountain Nature Park. But it was perfect weather for this guy.
He's a Rough Skinned Newt and not one to be touched without being very careful. There are toxins on his skin. But I preferred just taking photos of him.
It was nice to have a subject stay so perfectly still.
