Aka tobacco hornworm. Feasting on my tomatillos.
Growing under drip line of barn roof, south side of tractor barn. In proximity to blackberry and Harding grass, all very lush in this dry part of the tear
Very abundant locally.
Tiny flies(seen in 2nd. shot) landed on spider and it's prey with impunity.
Young gopher snake caught basking in the late sun. 80 degree F day. Caught around 6 P.M.
Found on the shore, in the shallows, and in the mud of a small pond during early evening. Temp was around 80 degrees fahrenheit.
NEED HELP! this bird has very small bill but does not curve down like a western or least sandpiper. The brownish color throws me off and i swear there are black legs. A juv. semi was spotted a few days ago and I'm sorry for the bad shots (foggy). Many western and least to compare which made this bird stick out more than others.
