Observed on Willow Creek below trail between Skunk Cabbage Meadow and Round Valley on 6/29/2009 at 10:23am.
A yellow flowered creeping lotus = perhaps Lotus strigosus var. hirtellus but we're not seeing any stipules (which Jepson specifies).
Inside the house. Can anyone do better than millipede for the ID? Thanks!
It's in Idyllwild Park near the town centre so I suppose it could just be dog poo but it's got quite a lot of hair in it.
This is the brassica with the yellow flowers that the lupine blue and the checkered white butterflies were visiting.
What looks to be the female of the "red-shafted form" from the Peterson bird guide.
A heavily cropped photo of a white-breasted nuthatch.
Ravens riding the thermals high above Idyllwild.
This is the single out of focus photo I got of this tiny butterfly.
