Oh, it sure does! Yep, it was under some of the California oaks with the little leaves (little brown ovals all over the ground in the photo).

Sorry California oaks or that is any tree from the northern hemisphere are trees from fairytale books to me. So very really will I recognise leaf litter. There is nothing lik a good lowland podacarp forest which are so much more familar to me :)

No worries, the oak trees in this state are unusual enough that most northern-hemispherians don't recognize them as oaks either. :)
