A few month's ago I posted an Calystegia from the other side of the Golden Gate, and it's ID was a bit of a puzzlement to IN correspondents. These--whatever they are-- were popping up all along the blufftop trail, often on top of robust specimens of poison oak.

I tend to ignore birds, and certainly am not equipped to try to photograph them; but this little fellow was bravely hopping about right next to us, so I made an exception.

As a child visiting Monterey county we collected shells; alas this wonderful segmented mollusk was not collectible unless you copped the entire creature, and of course hid the smelly corpse from Mother until it yielded it's imperishable segments.

We'd the same issue with our several expired turtles...

Not much of a specimen. When I was a kid diving in southern california, aquamen were encouraged to take a hammer down and smash as many of these as possible to preserve their diminishing kelp forests.
