About 1 inch in length. Would love to know what species it is. Haven't seen this one before.
Found underneath a log
On a coast live oak tree
Heptageniidae, found under cobble in a nice riffle
Probably Anna's, but weird throat patch.
Only got one blurry photo before it flew off
What is this bird? Thanks all for the id
Hundreds of these bees swarming around an underground nest(s) in an English Ivy pseudo-landscaped area with planted redwoods. Could see bees coming out of numerous tunnels and some tumbling balls of wrestling bees on the ground (mating behaviour?). I caught a male and a female gripped together, chilled them down and took these photos (photos of male here). Also lugefool got them in their habitat here, thanks to Keng-Lou James Hung on bugguide for ID help.
these fish were really hard to get a photo of. they were swimming around the same area in the creek, about 2 feet deep. they stayed close to the bottom.
