We found millipede cruising around by our things in the leaf litter and freshly spread wood mulch. I think this is a common millipede according to this website: http://www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn7472.html
I handled it briefly to show the children, it curled up when I initially picked it up.
We found this dead (or possibly very near death) millipede laying on a main trail in the leaf litter. I think this is a common millipede according to this website: http://www.ipm.ucdavis.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn7472.html
Phenolic scent when cut
Deeply buried in wood chips. Slight phenolic scent when first sliced, but soon farinaceous scent was predominant. Fibrous stalk, membrane over gills was slightly purple. Hairy scales on cap. Scales on stalk of smallest mushroom.
We scared this cottontail off the trail, but it came to rest under a low-hanging tree next to the trail.
A break in the rain was particularly warm and sunny, and these insects began flying all around. I asked the children if they could figure out where they were coming from and they did! They were emerging from the grassy, weedy ground between a fence and a treated wood raised bed.
