Female Leopard Shark caught and released by Dr. Thomas Boettger, Tamales Bay
Found this beautiful black beetle on maclure's beach trail. I estimate it was 3-4 cm from head to tail.
Found this baby starfish in a rock pool at the south end of Maclure's Beach. I didn't have a measuring tape or coins for scale on me. I estimated it was about a centimeter across.
I didn't see any adult star fish in the same rock pool.
Foraging in intertidal near 4 Black Turnstones.
Seven Black Oystercatchers visible on the rocks at Tomales Point during the hour we spent at the site.
High densities in emergent vegetation/along shore line.
Eating California Beach Fleas in the eel grass north of Dillon Beach
Beautiful adult dark morph.
Curious pinkish feet and bill on one bird in the photo.
