There are times that I am simply amazed by the beautiful, unusual and sometimes humble side of our planet. I especially love unusual nature photos.
Since I am a gardener, it stands to reason that I love everything beautiful in nature.
I thought it would be fun to have an ongoing page featuring some of my favorite nature photos, some beautiful, some puzzling and some downright ugly, but all still impressive.

Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy my collection of wonders of the world.
White wild turkeys are not true albinos. The turkeys have a recessive gene which gives them the different color than normal turkeys.
Many albino turkeys successfully breed and pass this gene on to their offspring.
A wonderful example of a shaggy mane mushroom. You will find these unusual mushrooms in disturbed ground, and along the edges of dirt roads.
In the Rocky Mountains, the shaggy mane, or Coprinus comatus can be seen from the car during the monsoon season.
Amazing photo of a red Anthurium flower in the sunlight. Anthuriums are easy to grow indoors too, even in low light.
They are also known as a Tropical delight.
Nature’s paintbrush. The colors of fall. There is nothing quite like the changing of leaves in the fall.
