The caterpillar my camper found in this observation (http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/809991).
I took it home and it pupated. Emerged today. Definitely looks like a Smerinthus, probably S. cerisyi. What do you think?
Will get some better pics of its spread wings once it rests more.
Identified by Dr. Jerry Powell. Flushed out of the Willows than landed on a willow trunk.
Hosts: adenostoma, Arctostaphylos, ceanothus
Not sure I've seen this species yet round the Lake. Near the Mussel basket reintroduction. Northeast Shore. Hanging out over water.
This leviathan must have been two ft. long. Must be eradicated for restoration of ML.
Worth good money on ornamental fish market no doubt...
Lots of babies scampering about the Boardwalk...
Female. Last flight of the season....
I need a 12-step Program to stop photographing this...
Overcast. No sun down in Lobos. All species seen almost the same species observed last week on far side of the Park.
There was a bug orange fish and a largish grey fish
