Found near ephemeral pond
Aka tobacco hornworm. Feasting on my tomatillos.
Rat sized rodent seen scurrying up a tree. Below the tree was a woodrat nest.
Very abundant locally.
Tiny flies(seen in 2nd. shot) landed on spider and it's prey with impunity.
The one on the right is definitely a blue belly but I don't know what the one on the left is! Some kind of skink or something?
On dead oak
