Children found this slender salamander under a decomposing tree round in a shady corner of the garden.
My first time seeing this. Large, around the size of a buckeye. Interestingly, while I saw several in this one spot hiking up the trail, I saw none on the way down, maybe an hour or two later.
Younger version of ferula comminus. Plant resembles fennel when young but is unrelated.
Found this spider under garden features but above ground. There is an overabundance of woodlice in the area, and this was the first time we'd seen this spider, though more had been found on later occasions as well.
In fruit .
