Description

A big Bird of prey swooped down from the deep woods and nearly went after my dog I think. It got really close to her, it was checking her out for sure. If my dog was a chihuahua I think she would have been a hawks lunch. I wondered if the Hawk was going to attack me as it checked me out too. Maybe it was nesting in the deep woods?? It flew away before I could get a good picture of it, then it sat on a branch and watched us for few seconds before it left. I was deep in old growth hemlock, never seen a hawk in that habitat before.. here are two really bad pictures of it. I guess the hawk saw the movement and thought mouse only to swoop down and see a dog??? Someone suggested northern goshawk

Name that snail in another post fore this post can you name this slug for me. What the heck are they doing?

The slug looks happy, maybe they are courting? I mean it does not look like the snail is eating the slug. It looks like they are both saying hello. I know that the slugs bits are under the mantle and not in the tail, but still I suspect the slug is responding as if this is a courtship.

Saw this on the PCT and don't know what it is..

I'm not really sure what I'm looking at here. It's a tripartate lichen but it has huge black spots that look to be cyano-bacteria, maybe the cyano-bacteria escaped but it looks lke they are living in strange giant cephalodia. Or pehaps these are simply apothecia. The orange under the edges screams of peltigera and it's apothecia but I've never seen peltigera where the apothecia lined the entire under surface rather than stick up in lobes. I'll have to try to look up this lichen I think it's one I've never seen before. I saw this in the Jefferson wilderness at about 4,000 feet in elevation.
It looks a like a large Peltigera Venosa but with an orange under surface..
