Unusually looking squirrel, with "piebald" coloration. Apparently, it has become already a viral phenomenon around the South Bay (http://www.viralnova.com/awesome-squirrel/).
In a vegetable garden on a tomatillo.
I believe it was ovipositing, as it sat stock still on these flowers (ornamentals; I don't know what they are) for long stretches of time.

We have a Mourning Dove nesting in our flower pot.
Small black bird with thin beak and white belly/chest. Sits on fences and dives for bugs
It has scale-like leaves (microphylls) on branching stems.
It has black spines arranged radially on its dorsal side. (We could only take the picture on its ventral sides)
A large polyp. Its coloration is green or brown to tan in color.
It was at a friend's house growing in their backyard. The leaves were fairly big and palm like. The crown wasn't very tall.
