A few of the plants sport a branch or two with these little rosettes of crimson leaves.

Other plants have typical leaf gall aphid deformities; similar in hue but seeming something different.

The meadow bordering Santa Rosa Creek was full of these very large dragonflies in perpetual flight.

My impression was that they were probably green darners...
