In a meadow in mixed forest that includes Coast Redwood sections, at about 2100 feet. Very attractive to bees and to a Mylitta Crescent butterfly.
Deep in Coast Redwood forest.
In the trail.
It made the sound that imitates the Northern Pygmy-Owl!
It was small, under a rock, in the midst of Coastal Redwood habitat.
These were small and fuzzy on top, hollow below
Took advantage of clippings from the trail maintenance!
Missing its tail, rather dramatically.
This poor chap almost got blown over in the wind a few times.
Two action shots.
Very windy on the hill, so not many butterflies today. I only saw the upper wing once, and there was some orange and black patterning. The few butterflies I saw today wanted to keep their wings folded! This was small, about the size of a Mylitta Crescent.
The pursuer becomes the pursued
The Crow had been harassing the RTH, but here the hawk turned that around.
Sorry about the blurriness, it was pretty dark by then.
Late evening near sunset. Lots of little bunnies along the side of Skyline Ridge Trail.
Unbranched antlers in velvet.
A little patch of them. Some with flowers still in bud, some with open flowers and green seed pods.
On an oak tree.
On a living oak tree.
On an oak tree, of course. Ton of these fluttering around all over the preserve.
