Don't know what species of bee this is – any help in ID'ing is appreciated!
Perched on roof and then came down to fishpond trying to catch some of the goldfish.
Observed at Ballona Wetlands while giving a presentation for their amazing docent group. This lizard was found under a pile of dead arundo stalks in a shaded area. A young Side-blotched Lizard was also found under these branches.
Observed at Ballona Wetlands while giving a presentation for their amazing docent group. This lizard was observed on an old discarded piece of telephone pole (in background of photo). Two Uta stansburiana were also basking on the same pole, although this Sceloporus did not seem to be a big fan of their presence and did chase them about a bit.
Drank and bathed in birdbath, then ate at feeder.
Sitting under a bush, possibly injured.
