Female perched on Ericameria linearifolia .
This individual was in the last hours of its life . It could barely move or stand up .
I think its cuneatus.
Not sure which yarrow this one is. Found along the north peak trail.
Came in all different sizes, to a few feet. Found in both the North Peak Trail and along the summit road near the visitors center.
If anyone is a moss person please identify it! It was growing on a log!
Look only at the light greenish one. They are live pretty close together!
Looking at only the yellow!
Looking at the orange lichen!
Looking at only the black lichen. There are many! What is it?
Not sure if I am correct but it looks like a wall flower. Could be the western wall flower. Found this along the North Peak Trail.
The newly rediscovered Mt. Diablo Buckwheat, thought to have been extinct for 70 years!
Not sure of the var. But both the stems and the leaves were hairy. It was VERY tiny. Short in stature.
While riding my bicycle up Mt Diablo (Northgate Rd) around 8:40 am, I spotted a Bobcat crossing the road in front of me. (I have no doubt in my mind about the identification of this animal with its stubby tail and white markings behind the ears, but as I didn't have my camera with me, I don't have a photo.)
