Very small Atriplex? This was 2-3 cm high.
After patiently waiting for many minutes for this beetle to emerge from a shadow, it brazenly walked right up to my lens.

This creeping borage was pretty common. Kind of doubt I'll get to species.
Plenty of these hanging out in Indian mortar holes at the amphiteater area.
This might be Leptosiphon liniflorus. Need to look at alternatives. Def. don't think it's Minuartia, Linum, or Limnanthes, which were my original thoughts.
Would definitely appreciate some confirmation on this one.
Small flock of ~5. Thought I'd seen some earlier, so felt validated in getting a decent look.
