Redwood Sorrel growing in the Founder's Grove, in Humboldt Redwoods State Park, CA.
Western Sword Fern in the Founder's Grove.
I sure thought this was a centipede, but you can count the legs per segment. This was in the Founders' Grove in Humboldt State Park.
These water horsetails were growing about 40 feet from the Eel River.
One of the kids spotted this one. She knew it was a stink bug, so I looked it up just now for a more precise name. Seems like a green stink bug.
Appears to be a soldier beetle (Cantharis rustica?) Hanging around by the Eel River on a warm spring day.
Appeared to be a Pacific Tree Frog. It was out on dry, sunny ground near the Eel River. Later took to the water.
This medium sized millipede was one of several we saw crawling along the ground and up the sides of the redwood trees.
Another creature that miraculously survived a stampede of curious children. This slug was creeping along the redwood leaf litter near Burlington campground. It responded to movement within 12 inches by withdrawing its eye stalks.
