Orchid like flower
"Donna, there was a Bald Eagle back there. Turn around. A...raptor...with a...white head.!"
Cool enough, five hours later on the ride home, it was sitting on the same pole.
Seen with Rock Pigeon. Three species on two light posts
Three species on two different light posts. Here the Pigeons are seen with the CA Gull in the second picture
Three species on two street lights on the same corner - just seemed worth recording
An interesting bush.
First photo with new telephoto lens. It came out oddly well.
Heavily infested oleander bush
In a lawn under a redwood tree. Mushroom-y smell when broken.
Green plant with small leaves found in McLaren park (San Francisco)
Curious and miniscule wasp observed on the galls of Diastrophus kincaidii on thimbleberry (Rubus parviflorus). Sort of like http://bugguide.net/node/view/502848, but maybe not with the armored thorax.
Same as http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/1937716. Alex found several of these on a CA hazelnut.
