Description

The very first time I see one.
Although I was not looking for them, my attention got caught by a strange plant growing on the side of the trail. Big shiny green leaves with dark spots...
I looked closer, hoping to see some future flower growth of some sort and didn't find any. And then it dawned on me. Those barely noticeable things on the sides were flowers, and they were those Fetid Adderstongues I had heard about, but never seen before. Very cool.

This pretty coyote was roaming around Kelso Depot (Mojave National Preserve).
He came quickly to my car and then waited, just as if he was expecting me to give him food. He's probably used to tourists feeding him :-(

The second newt of the day, really close to the first one. Even though he was not moving fast, I was not fast enough to get his head. He went back to his hole.
