A grove of California Bay trees along the Monument Trail at Henry Coe State Park.

Family Lauraceae. The California Bay's spicy aroma is one of the signature (and one of my favorite) scents of California's foothill woodlands.

It is almost entirely endemic to California.

Description

From late August through early November, male tarantulas along the central California coast leave the safety of their burrows and spend the remaining few months of their lives (if they are lucky) in search of females to mate with.

Species-level identification based on location and soon to be published research by tarantula expert Chris Hamilton.

Here are the fish I thought might be some sort of salmonid. I clicked the ID Request, but I'll be surprised if anyone can make these out well enough to speciate them. Worth a shot though, I suppose.
