Such a pity....

Such a lovely neighborhood where I live:

Trail Lake, Moose Pass, Alaska, this afternoon.

Too bad the same can't be said of all the neighbors....

Poisonous amanita mushroom at left and the prickly-tempered porcupine below right.

Note the dusty brown bear front paw prints on the panel warning about bears on this trash dumpster with its bear-proof doors.

And what is this to the right? Could it be the poisonous Red Elderberry?

Left we have an alien life form--a variety of stinkhorn known as mutinus caninus. It smells much worse than it looks.
Right is the king of thorns--the Devil's club.

Ah yes, stinging nettles to the left, the poisonous baneberry below right.

Such a pretty flower, the monkshood. Too bad it's poisonous.

Hey!!! Not so fast there. WE DON'T HAVE SNAKES OF ANY KIND!
