I am attaching some pictures from my game camera. I am wondering what that larger animal might be. Going by the fence behind it, I estimate its height around 3.5 feet. Would appreciate your thoughts.

I found these ants on vetch in the yard. I had recently learned that vetch has extrafloral nectaries glands for ants to help protect it. Don't know if that is enough for ant identification or not from a photo.

I found these bees inside a dead stem of Fennel while I was cleaning the garden. When I opened the stem there was a bee that flew away and then another one seems to do the same. I'm guessing that these are bees that have matured and coming our for spring?

I took this in my backyard the day after I put the brown one on that we could not identify as I did not have enough pictures. While this was not in focus, you can see that this blue damselfly is mating with a brown one that looks just like the one in my other picture:

This looked like a fungus. Not sure if it is. A friend said it could be some sort of sap. I noticed this on juniper trees where the bark had scaling or been peeling off. Also in few places it looked like it was flowing from top to bottom. There were places where star like formations had occurred. plans or
