Along the shore of Manzanita Lake, Lassen Volcanic National Park, Shasta County, California
This is the biggest Crane Fly I've ever seen. It must've been over 2 inches from base of antennae to end of abdomen. Douglas Fir-Redwood forest.
This tick became enamored of me and hitched a ride, but did not embed. The locus assigned is his point of origination, but the image was acquired when a suitable background appeared about one half km distant.
Group of wasps found flying around a growth of yellow wildflowers on the bluffs beside the beach. Not sure on whether or not they were pollinating.
Got a little too close to this nest and ended up with a sting on the ear. Looks like one of the wasps is carrying a larva?
Wonder if these qualify for Roadkill project...
Fantastic beer hall from the 1860's found here at end of wonderful hike.
