Body length 60 mm. On shaded porch during daylight; a diurnal moth, not nocturnal as many I notice here.
Blooming in lawn in April, naturalized six petaled small white flower. Clusters on long stems. Presumably introduced.
Diurnal moth. Abundant around Cercis occidentalis flowers in early April, also observed presumably puddling.
Diurnal moth or skipper?
This species - or a mix of superficially similar looking ones? - is widespread in the foothill woodlands on north facing slopes along this section of the American River now.
Kingfisher. A pair (or more?) flew up and down this stretch of river during my hikes in and out. Unfortunately this was the best photo.
Body length was about 15 mm.
Longest dimension of opposing leg tips was around 65 to 70 mm.
Found sleeping on the dry porch wall after leaving the light on overnight, with rain happening on and off.
