Description

Just past Trail of 100 Giants/Redwood Meadow Campground.

Slithering rather slowly and awkwardly. Not sure if it was having trouble getting purchase on the road, if it was trying to keep on eye on me and escape at the same time, or if rattlesnakes are naturally kinda dopey (hadn't seen one actually moving before, usually they just sit).

I think this is the aphid and not the fungus (Exobasidium vaccini) because of the two different gall shapes, and because I don't recall the flatter ones being convex on the reverse side.

Photo isn't great, but there were a lot of these guys and I got a pretty good look at most of them. All quite small, lots of white on the backs of the ears and behind the ears, stripes dark brown/bright white, tails reddish with black tips.
