Presumably a white-footed mouse (deceased) found in a storage unit while helping my friend move.
Wooly darkling beetle, Eleodes osculans, at Bolsa Chica Ecological Reserve. Saline emergent wetland habitat.
A pika in the talus on the north slope of Split Mountain. Approximate elevation is 13,500' or 4,100 m.
Barren habitat; entirely talus. No significant tree or shrub cover nearby. Only small plants growing between boulders here and there.
Elevation approximately 7,400' or 2,250 m. This is the lowest I've seen a pika colony in the Sierra Nevada. The end of the Tokopah Falls trail from Lodgepole Camp passes right through the start of their talus habitat, and this picture is from right next to the trail. The talus here is adjacent to riparian and shrub dominated habitats, with woods also nearby.
Golden-mantled ground squirrel on San Gorgonio Peak.
It was too dark for decent pictures, but I had to try. These were the first elk I'd seen.
California Valley Coyote (Canis latrans ochropus) in the San Gabriel Mountains, California, USA. Taken along highway 39 between San Gabriel and Morris Reservoirs.
Blursus americanus. Damn my shaky hands in low morning light.
Northern Ringneck Snake, Diadophis punctatus edwardsii.
Common in the southeast Pennsylvania woods during a certain part of each summer.
Trout in Lower Lamarck Lake, possibly the namesake Golden Trout of that wilderness area.
