5 Nature of the Wild Polar Land

Nature of the Wild Polar Land

Posted on October 31, 2012 by team

The nature of Taimyr peninsular is rather severe. In summer after sunset temperature falls to 3C (37.4F). And even in such conditions the vegetation of Taimyr is rich enough. Plants have to survive in a cold polar summer and leave offspring in thawed soil over the permafrost.

The climate is closely connected with permafrost: when the sun doesn’t shine, the air is getting cold fast.

Moss, berries and flowers grow everywhere.

This is cloudberry hiding among the leaves.

And this is blueberry.

Fighting for survival plants try to occupy as much vital space as possible.

But still there are some places where grows nothing. More often they are located next to fallen trees.

Mushrooms grow in tundra too.

Some of them are rather big.

For trees it’s not also easy to survive.

There are a lot of birch trees. And they can look absolutely different. This one is growing in such a complicated way.

But these ones look the ordinary way.

Lichen actively grows on coniferous trees.

Tree branches suffer from strong cold winds.

But life continues.

Tundra has a lot of streams with algae and duckweed.

The birds are very shy and do not let photograph them closely.

There are a lot of midge and other insects like beetles, bees, grasshoppers.

Taimyr is the land of lakes.

Sometimes landscapes resemble the map of the world…

… Or even faces!

You won’t probably find any similar nature anywhere. It is unique and beautiful.

Location: Taimyr
