Adults and nymphs, there were quite a lot hanging out on our pomegranate tree. Have never seen them on this tree until now!
Found this cute little guy in a cabinet at work, definitely surprised to find him there! No sign of any other spiders or bugs, I wonder how long he'd been in there.
Red-eared slider and ???
Found on exterior wall of my house late at night about 6 feet from ground level.
Just noticed these blooming recently.
"We saw a raven trying to "lift off" with a snake in its beak; when the raven flew off, we saw that the snake was dead.
"We stopped the car to take photos (a little yucky with the wasp on there and probably dead for some time with how dry it looks and embedded into pavement)."

"A quick check on WhatsThatBug seems to indicate this beetle is a Stout's Hardwood Borer (Polycaon stoutii). It was about as long as the diameter of a quarter. I found it trundling along the base of the first tree west of La Brea Ave., on north side of Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, CA 90046."

It flew away.
Foraging - on carob pods?
My first spotting of a green fig beetle this year. It was upside down on a sidewalk so I picked it up and placed it on a bush by the sidewalk.
Found dead on the old paved road/trail that leads from Sullivan Ridge Fire Road down to Murphy Ranch in Rustic Canyon. It was not clear why the lizard died, but it had been scavenged by a number of insects.
