Some sort of plant - incredibly prickly/sharp. All over the Joshua Tree Desert.
Some sort of desert oak? In Joshua Tree.
Some sort of pin needle or fuzzy mold? Tiny. Found on a rock at the Roadside Boulders in Joshua Tree, CA.
My guess is Diapheromera covilleae (Creosote bush walking stick), but it's not on iNat.
two jackrabbits - one was startled from the brush, then a second one. just west of quail springs picnic area.
Perched on a Joshua tree on a hot summer day.
At least four individuals lying in the shade of boulders on the exposed rock above and east of Barker Dam. All were ewes or young individuals.
