On El Camino Real near Palomar Airport Rd. Road kill or airplane impact? On flight path of McCellan-Palomar Airport
Always see this tiny ants. What species are they?
Fairly certain this is a desert cottontail, but would like to double check.
I was thinking maybe this is a lesser goldfinch. What does is look like to you?
I do not know what species this cactus is. It has ball like segments, and has thorns and flowers just like the prickly pear.
Found in a slow moving stream of freshwater or perhaps brackish water.
I am not positive that this is an insect. They were photographed on stagnant water. They seemed to be floating, not breaking the surface tension of the water and skipping across on the surface of the water.
This tree is native of the Peruvian Andes and is invasive in California.
In the photographs I captured the wings were outstretched while the insect was at rest, leading me to believe it is a dragonfly rather than a damselfly.
