We spent a week in Alaska.  The first picture I want to post is a bird for Gram, specifically a Black-capped Chickadee, the northern counterpart of the Carolina Chickadees we have.

These pictures were all taken outside the Lakeview Inn, which is close to Denali National Park & Preserve.  We saw several Snowshoe Hares, which are all beginning to get their white fur for winter.

And there were several Red Squirrels about:

In Memoriam

“Gram”

My grandmother, Eloise Bame Diller, passed away early this morning at 106 years of age.  Above is a snapshot of her that I took on August 8, 2018.  Below is her obituary.  She can rest assured that I’ll continue taking pictures of birds for her.
