A whole pack of coyotes would hang out on this corner of Crystal Springs Drive pretty regularly for a few weeks. They were definitely aware of all the people watching, but didn't seem to back away. A ranger hung out nearby to make sure people didn't get too close.
Adjacent to Los Angeles River bike path on Newell St.
"This seems to be a significant sighting. I wonder if this little beauty wandered out of Griffith Park and settled into a urinal in the basement of the LACC Chemistry building. Luckily school is on break and the urinal was bone dry. Rescued and currently living in Mount Washington terrarium." - Daniel Marlos

Aphids on my milkweed plant back in May 2014.
Can someone confirm species ID?
At Travel Town Park on edge of Griffith. Park side of the freeway. Under exhibit rail cars.

Lots of hummingbirds feeding in Los Feliz, Ca.
This Great Egret is eating a gopher. This photo was taken in a small park within Griffith Park in Southern California. When I first saw it, it was standing motionless, and did so for about 8-10 minutes. I didn't notice it at first because it was so still, and when I did finally notice it, I thought it was some kind of little bird statue... until I saw it suddenly move and spear something in the grass with it's bill. Suddenly, it had a meal of this gopher. It was fascinating to watch.
This appears to be a young male Allen's Hummingbird. In the first photo it is feeding on the flower of an Aloe that I have planted in my 4th-floor garden in downtown Los Angeles. In the second photo (taken just a few seconds after the first photo) it has just left the Aloe flowers and is hovering near one of my hummingbird feeders.
An Anna's Hummingbird in downtown Los Angeles, perched in my 4th-story urban garden. I believe that this Hummingbird is an adolescent Anna's Hummingbird. (I'm not an expert, so this is my best guess.)
Two hummingbirds in downtown Los Angeles, feeding from Hummingbird feeders in my 4th-story garden. The distant Hummingbird is an Allen's Hummingbird, and I believe that the near Hummingbird is an adolescent Anna's Hummingbird. (I'm not an expert, so this is my best guess.)
