Saw one of these a few days ago about 200 yds. away at the foot of Snake Mountain. These shots a bit better; also show what I take to be neat lines of 'sapsucker wells'.
Close to the 4th. St. Traffic.
Seem to find these everywhere I've been this week.
A foot or so from the turkey-tails of the last post on the same bay log.
On an old Bay log fallen under the Redwoods. The same log hosted the fungus of my next post too.
Found this small animal in this marshy area; in a spot bone-dry last month.
Our crew beat down a thicket of Blackberry to reveal a patch of ferns on this moist patch, mixed also with Coyote Brush.
At the same site we saw the California Newts in my last post, one tunnel sheltered this shy creature.
On a work crew, clearing a small hummock of Oxalis, we found a maze of tunnels housing a 'colony' of newts.
One of the more vigorous and ubiquitous city weeds: frequently burgeoning out of the merest lacuna in the grimy concrete of our frantic avenues. At this site: joyfully reaching up into the perfumed atmosphere surrounding the fabulous Superburger.
