“A Miscellany is a collection without a natural ordering relation.” ― John Edensor Littlewood
This morning, Tina of Travels and Trifles invites us to post images that may never fit into any Challenge category, so I went looking for recent captures that I just…like. For no particular reason. Turns out, however, that I could say truthfully that they do have something in common. They were all taken within an hour’s drive from my home in Oregon.

I hope you find a huge collection of various things to delight you this week, close by your home. Living local has many environmental and social benefits and can help heal the planet and our selves.
These are all so lovely! I particularly love the oak apple.
Wow. Very unique photos. Well done.
Nicely done Priscilla. I love your aquarium shot, and I’ve never heard of an oak apple. It’s beautiful! Is it edible?
An oak apple is really a wasp gall built onto an oak leaf. It’s not a fruit at all, it’s a nest for baby wasps. 🙂 Thank you!
You did, indeed, delight me with your photos. I am looking forward to looking through files to find those photos that I really like but never fit in to post.
I’m glad – happy hunting! 🙂
Nice post Priscilla. I especially like your ceiling shot in Bald Hill.
Wow. That’s a great set of odd ones. I’ve never seen a puffin like that, for example
Thanks! I hadn’t either, and he was a caged example – a helpful volunteer taught us a lot about auks.
Oooh! Love that jellyfish.
I know, cool! 🙂
Brilliant capture of the jelly fish! And you were in my neck of the woods while in Corvallis. It’s been a few years since I’ve been there, but nature everywhere. Donna
Thanks, Donna. I’m really loving living in Corvallis!
I enjoyed taking classes at OSU just for fun.
Priscilla, a great shot of the jelly fish (Pacific sea nettle?) If so, the Boston, MA aquarium has some on display. They are beautiful looking.
Yes, those are sea nettles. The lighting and blue background show them off beautifully!
