Photos of the Day: Guard Dogs Use Subtle Mind Control to Defend Bainbridge Home

This pair of Aussies on Spargur Loop was so confident in their mental prowess that they never roused from their chairs (shielded from the rain under the garage eve) and only croaked out a few token barks at me today as I rode my bicycle up their street. Luckily a fence kept me safe, and ”the…

Photos of the Day: A Beaut of a Newt and Its Only Predator

Kathy Haskin was out hiking with her daughter over the weekend when they spotted this diminutive Bainbridge Island resident. Curious to learn more, they contacted IslandWood’s “amphibian/reptile expert extraordinaire” Christina Doherty.

Photo of the Week: Chilly Hilly Remains of the Day

Some 4,000 riders of all ages were expected to ride the 2014 Chilly Hilly today, February 23. The final count is not in, but lousy weather tends to reduce the numbers.

Photos of the Day: Rare Lenticular Cloud over Mount Rainier a Harbinger of Snow?

This afternoon, December 19, Bainbridge Island photographer Marilynn Gottlieb snapped this view of Mount Rainier with a lenticular, or saucer-shaped, cloud cover.
