Found on coast live oak.
This is the pod of the vetch plant.
Seed pods just about ripe.
This was the only plant I saw in the area.
These were seen around the higher vernal pond at double ponds.
As you can see, this one is blue and many were seen flying around.
I have been wanting to get some more pics of of this moth since I first saw them several years ago.
There were many different pollinators on these flowers. Known as Bladder parsnip.
This is just short of 5 inches long.
This grasshopper looks very much like the one I saw in the barn meadow on April 9.
There were quite a few of these guys flying around the Double Pond area.
I don't have a pic yet. They were too small and too far away this time. I will be going back again.
