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
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.
Feeding on star thistle.
