Nocturnal porch moth, head to wingtip was very roughly 30 mm.
My favorite primate!
Bald eagle at Fair Oaks Bluff
No photo, definitely on a summer trip but may be +/- 2 years of this date. Only flying squirrel I've seen in the wild.
Canyon Live Oak
Wasp gall on Canyon Live Oak
Rock tripes on basalt boulders, brown upper surface, pale gray lower surface.
Foliose basalt growing lichen, with flat long circular edged lobes, gray/green upper surface, and medim brown lower surface
Small, very pale bodied foliose basalt growing lichen, with wrinkly edged lobes.
Cliffbrakes in Vacaville (note: brake family, not cliffbrake)
Fern in a crevice under a basalt boulder
Mammal scat in a depression on top of a large boulder. The precarious approach from the ground seems to rule out local lagomorphs, so its size suggests a ground squirrel.
Fig? tree in a space currently used as a cow pasture. Hard to tell if it was accidentally introduced, or cultivated.
Season's last three leaves on a blue oak
A blurry bird with bits of yellow.
Watched it eat a small but plump green caterpillar, before it dawned on me to grab my camera. It flew off before I achieved focus.
