  10. こんにちは。今回も盛り沢山の内容ですね。風景では白馬三山の美しさに感動です。八方池に大勢の観光客や登山客らしい人がいるのにはびっくり。お花ではコマクサの群生を初めて見ました。山がピンクで埋まると綺麗です。写真ではチョウチョとトンボが、よくこんな至近距離で撮れましたね。そして最高傑作はツバメの雛たち。下から2枚目の大きな口が四つ開いてる写真は、これ凄いですよ。私ならすぐフォトコンテストに出しちゃいます。

       こんにちは。お褒めいただき、ありがとうございます。今回は3日間とも晴れて、美しい景色と花を見る事が出来ました。
       八方池までは、約2時間。花を見ながらですと、往復5時間位かかります。前回は雪渓の所で引き返しました。
       ようやく行けて嬉しかったです。 コマクサの群生は初めて見ました。ツバメの写真は偶然、良い写真が撮れました。大きい写真にすると、アラが目立ちますので、ブログで満足しています。

  19. Minoruさまこそお天気に恵まれよかったですね。どの写真も素敵ですが、5枚目の幾重にも重なる青い山脈にはゾクッと来ました。ツバメの雛たちも可愛すぎます。大糸線では栂池と岩岳にはスキーに何度か行きましたが、八方尾根、白馬五竜は上級者向きという感が強く行かずに終わりました。

      こんばんは。お褒めいただきありがとうございます。私も大糸線は電車が不便なので、スキーには行かずじまいでした。よく行ったのはニセコと安比、年を取ってからは、奥志賀でした。栂池は次のブログに出てきます。

  23. いいですね~。コマクサの群生、すばらしいです! ヒマラヤケシは群生ではないのですか。青さが映えますね。アサギマダラの浅葱色も良く似合っています。雪渓もまだこんなにあるのですね。
    ツバメの赤ちゃん、顔中口にしての大合唱。とても愛らしいですね!!

      こんばんは。コマクサは種が岩場に落ちて増えるのと、担当の人がこまめに種の出来てる花から、それを近くに播くそうです。
       ヒマラヤケシは雨でかなりやられてました。育てるのが大変だそうです。天気が良く、運も良く色々な写真が撮れました。

  34. How beautiful scenes they are! They reminded me my young age. I've been 八方尾根、twice. One is skiing , almost falling on the skislope,not skiing. The other is walking with our children. I like the North Alps in summer.
    けしの青がとてもきれいですね。多分はじめて見ました。

  36. Another delightful post!! Such wonderful photographs!

    I remember when Nagano hosted the Winter Olympics - we really enjoyed the beautiful mountain scenery, and it's easy to imagine it has wonderful skiing! I love that one of the mountains looking all misty-blue (that is exactly how our Big Horn Mountains looked first thing this morning, which was very unusual!), and the one of the para-glider was such fun, it brought back memories of when we lived on the side of the mountain and para-gliders used to sail over our house all summer - and one of them had a canopy that looked just like this one! Reminded me of a banana. :-)

    The wildflowers are all so pretty - my favorite is the Yukiwarisoh, which I've never seen before. So delicate, and such a pretty color! I also love the butterflies and dragonfly (I adore dragonflies), but my favorite photo is the second to last one, of the four baby swallows demanding their lunch!! :-) Fantastic capture!
