Multicolored Asian Lady Beetle (Harmonia axyridis), Redwood City, San Mateo County, California - August 2009. This exotic species was introduced into North America to help control aphids and is now widespread and common. It may now be replacing or competing with some of our native coccinellids.

I found this little (5 cm?) lizard under a rock. It was very sluggish, even though it was warm outside - maybe a juvenile? I assume this is Sceloporus?

Description

Beat from an oak tree. In the field, I thought this might be Wamba crispulus and excitedly took a couple of photos of this small spider, only to find it had disappeared before I could collect it. Tentatively identified based on the appearance. One more photo and more details here: http://bugguide.net/node/view/1109356

A male was found at the same time and location:

I heard a squeaking noise and saw this hawk fly from tree to tree. I'm unsure if its either a sharp-shinned hawk or a cooper's hawk.
