My coworker found this on the beach. Still very stinky, and quite a find!
Found in tidal marsh via plankton tow.
Found in a pellet under a Barn Owl perch.
Found the coolest fly today. There were two pollinating this Sticky Monkeyflower bush (just about the only one with flowers left in Mitchell Canyon). Metallic green, round bodies, and it had insanely long proboscis - about 1 inch or so.
This Bigleaf Maple seed seems to have fallen exactly into a slit in this leaf. Don't think it's heavy enough to have caused it to tear...
