WINTER CAMOUFLAGE

If you needed to catch your meals at close range,  it would be an advantage to blend in with your surroundings.  And if you lived in Alaska in the winter, white would be the perfect way to blend in.  A number of animals in Alaska do just that;  wear a white coat in the winter.  Come spring, their coats (or feathers) gradually return to summer camouflage colors.  The following are images of several of these animals,  in summer and in winter colors.

  1. I really like the Winter coats, but I doubt that I will ever see them in person 😉
