Flying low, landing frequently along clay, salty levee
I've been told we have both a native and non-native sea lavender at the Hayward Shoreline and I'd like to know the difference. This plant had significantly larger leaves than a nearby sea lavender: http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/2363482
Can anyone help me with these? Thanks!
Not moving on this chilly morning.
Palling around on the runway grass with some Canada Geese.
These were common today, but quite active; I never got a good shot.
Neither of these pictures are decisive, but together they are!
This spider jumped a good two feet in the air soon after I took this picture. I assume it was the sheer thrill of knowing it would be iNatted!
Found by one of the students on my field trip today. Really fun to watch it swim. It would swim around then often stay on an Eastern Mud Snail shell.
Really cool wasp.
Enjoying the super high tide.
