Explore Pink Snow, Called Chlamydomonas, and more!

Pink snow, blood snow or watermelon snow, looks like and even smells faintly of watermelon. The pink coloration is due to a cold-loving algae called Chlamydomonas nivalis. This phenomenon is common during the summer in alpine and coastal polar regions worldwide.

Lamprey ~Petromyzon marinus ~Lampreys (sometimes also called lamprey eels) are a family of jawless fish, whose adults are characterized by a toothed, funnel-like sucking mouth.While lampreys are well-known for those species which bore into the flesh of other fish to suck their blood, most species of lamprey are non-parasitic and never feed on other fish. In zoology, lampreys are sometimes not considered to be true fish because of their distinctive morphology and physiology. ✿

Iceberg; this pink iceberg is the result of algae which is growing in the ice and has been effected by the UV rays which results in the algae producing this reddish pink color.

12/10/2013. Our first snow accumulation this season in the region we live in, the "Downriver" suburbs 20 miles south of Detroit. Perhaps next week will be last snow of this season! I would certainly greatly appreciate it if that is the case!
