Adult moth in Apple Valley. Photo by Amanda Steenson. The nearest habitat for the larvae of this species would be the Mojave River bed to the west. California's native wild grape (Vitis girdiana) has been recorded from where Interstate 15 crosses the river.

Adult spider, "on our orange tree working on her nest". Perhaps Hibana incursa?
Photo by Dana Cole: "These birds would not leave us alone! When we stood very still, they flew so close to us that I could have reached out and touched them! They *seemed* angry with us- maybe we were close to a nest? They were beautiful- they looked black (or very dark) and flew at us like a bullet and then would flash their red chests at us. It was a very cool experience!"
Photos by Dana Cole. Immature bird; per Kimball Garrett at the Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History: "I'd call it a juvenile Cooper's based on the
apparently graduated (not square-tipped) tail and sharp ventral streaking".
