Taken while on a field trip with Liam O'Brien
Embarrassing to admit, this was a county bird in Alameda!
Awful picture; apologies for that. But a beautiful flower
Near where we saw the Snowberry Clearwing Moth...
Highlight of the remarkable walk with Liam, Leslie, Jeff, Rich
On the amazing Butterfly/Bird walk with Leslie, Liam, Jeff, Rich, and more
Thanks to Leslie Flint for this one.
Robberfly didn't think I could get a picture. Well, I did. It is simply not very good. There are two of them in this picture, though. I'll get a better one, someday.
Thanks to Jeff Miller on this one - he knew where it lived!
The field trip originally misidentified this, but I am still not 100% sure. This is a lousy photo, but I will check my iPhone for additional ones.
We had a remarkable Bird/Butterfly walk, with robberfly (from here on iNat) leading, and Rich Cimino, Leslie Flint, Jeff Miller, and others along, too. This was our first butterfly; I was the one who found it!
It was a bit windy today so hard to get a closeup
this bug was perched on a flower and when I got closer, it reared up and revealed the red just under the front legs. Awesome
It kept turning so the best I could get was a side shot.
