The distinctions between M. bicolor and M. wickhami do not seem clear to me. There were a bunch of these beautiful weevils on CA rose, though, some penetrating the flower buds.

This bee was really going after it in this thistle. I couldn't get a shot of the head.

Probably not identifiable, but just to note there's a neat cyanolichen up there. I've never been up on the ridge in winter after rain. Probably worth it.

Looks like pics of Villa agrippina on BugGuide, but BG also says this genus is almost impossible to ID to species.

Given the very long antennae, I suspect this is a very worn A. flameusella. I wanted it to be Adela oplerella, but that seems to have shorter antennae.
