Two different morphs of Harmonia axyridis. Thought the black and red one was Chilocorus until I realized Chilocorus doesn't have white spots on its head.

Observed a small bird in the brush alongside the trail I was on. It had a black color, brownish underbelly, orange beak, and and seemed to be foraging for something. Not sure if a carnivore or herbivore.

At the beginning of the trail along Strawberry Creek, there were many forms of thistle. Some bloomed into bright purple, while others were still in the process of growing. On the trail's floor, thistle bushes laid on the grown. The bushes had leaves with repeated patterns. The leaves were long and spiraled into a circle, forming the bush. Many other thistle growing bushes were also found in the area. They were abundant and large in size.
