When first observed it was not yet emerged from its larval form exoskeleton and we could not identify it. After about 10 minutes of trying to climb out of water it emerged and its winds unfolded. So very cool! At the Copeland Creek crossing.
I'm looking at the beige mounds here, not the California Laurel Aphids. On Ca Bay Laurel on Meadow trail near spring box.
Is this an invasive pea? Found in grassland near trail across from the marsh.

Photo came out a little dark. Thanks for any help.
This tree is on the edge of the native plant garden at Sonoma State University but it doesn't look native.
I think. In riparian zone.
It's color appeared lighter than my photo shows it. Thanks for any help.
On Oak, so I think it's Laetiporus gilbertsonii var. gilbertsonii.
A few of the roosters from Cotati's feral chicken flock.
