Horsetails next to a marshy lake.
The ginko is the oldest unchanged tree on Earth. Interestingly, the female trees have seeds that give off the smell of vomit. That's why there are only male tree planted here on campus.
English elm with lots of suckers (identical trees growing out of the sides of the trunk). Apparently the branches sometimes fall off randomly and the wood is used for coffins.
"Big Cone Pine." About 50 feet tall with huge cones that can get up to 10lb. The needles are long and thick and are 3 per cluster. Native to southern California and Mexico.
Also called the "refridgerator tree" because the trunk's temperature stays cool.
This is the tree that makes all those white/pink petal looking things that are seen all over campus.
Orange lichen on the side of a wall by the greenhouse.
Really pretty yellow hibiscus with a red center and both yellow and red stigma at the ends of the style.
Pollinated by gnats. The dracula orchid's little white flower has gill-looking things (to attract gnats?)
Cucumber plant with white dots that are piles of tiny spores.
Powdery mildew seen on this ornamental maple.
Brown shiney slug with black tentacles.
Red clover seen in a small cluster at UBNA. Day was a bit rainy/misty and overcast.
Looks like oyster mushroom but I'm not sure because it's not on a stump or tree.
Turkey tail fungus growing parralel to the ground on a downed log.
Tiny bird atop of a tall palm(?) tree. Rusty orange/red head and chest. Mostly brown body with streaks of white and dark brown.
Artist fungi seen on campus. Spores above the mushroom.
Oyster mushroom on a tree stump.
Sleeping duck. I thought it was a regular mallard at first but its head is black instead of green or brown.
Tree with extensive white rot fungus.
Saw these male and female ducks just laying on the grass in the Quad. They must have been sleeping since their heads were tucked into their wings.
I looked it up and apparently hybrid bluebells can be both blue and white.
Really cool green flowers with only two petals. They looked like they were sitting on lily pads. They were probably planted since they were right next to planted bluebells infront of the building.
Really deep purple flower among really big but also regular size grass.
