Saw one of these last year, ID'd by bugguide: http://bugguide.net/node/view/1015359
Dozens of these crawling over the kelp...
Someone told me they were tasty...
Near the river, lots fling this week.
An old fashioned(by California standards) landscape plant that seem to be regaining popularity.
A nice nectaring plant for butterflies.
Dry mountain this season, but still soggy under the spring in Orchard Meadow.
Odd to find this species here? Calflora does have a couple other observations in Sonoma County.
Woods today full of the call of this bird-- and it's resonant drumming -- all the way from the Pythian trailhead to Orchard Meadow.
Lots of these today.
