Trying to figure out what the Anise Swallowtail is using here
With a Common Checkered-Skipper (see previous entry)
Looks like a goldenrod (Solidago sp), but I'm not 100% sure.
Clumps look somewhat like CA fescue, but inflorescence does not?
I think this is a raven... or might it be a crow?
Note rounded lobes at base of leaf, not pointed.
S. chilense or S. subspicatum
Shrubby lupine, not sure which particular species.
Probably P. elegans, but can't be certain without fresh flowers.
Another female specimen, photographed up close.
Female specimen from a distance.
