Rescued and released (banded) Western Gull, called a friend to join him.
A caterpillar found crawling over the trail in a shady area.
Found under a rock, with some old mud-dauber nests. About 2-3 mm long
A lone orange-brown skipper. Was not feeding, but came to a stop for several minutes on the Poison Oak.
Several tiny bees drinking nectar and collecting pollen. Very small (~1.5 mm maybe). Feeding off Bladderpod flowers.
Juvenile found sunning itself. Very skittish.
Jumped from one plant to another, and made quite a bit of commotion.
One of a lot of Western Fence Lizards out today. Nothing else seems to want to brave the heat.
Three together on the Narrow-Leaf Milkweed.
One of a few monarchs I saw today, using Narrow-Leaf Milkweed.
Found bounding through underbrush near the Nature Center. It was accompanied by a younger Cottontail (Certainly old enough to be self sufficient, maybe totally unrelated, and they just happened to be in the same area).
