This looks like a native but was growing in someone's yard. Note the fruiting bodies in the second picture.
Most likely a cynipid wasp.
Found this in the backyard of a suburban home. Large in size, looked like a dead leaf. Can anybody tell me what kind of moth it is and if it is in any way harmful (to pets or plants)? There is an apple tree that sometimes gets codling moths, but it does not look like a codling moth. Will this moth harm the apples?
Juvenile (with parent)
Gulf Fritillary. In nearby creek area. Several hanging around a white passion vine plant on a fence.
This guy has been eating my tomatoes and tripped the rat trap.
This must have be planted but they seem to have gone wild.
This pine tree was killed by this fungus or the fungus invaded it after it died.
These guys are enough to make me believe in spontaneous generation.
On the street in front of King's Nursery.
This one not interested in Teasel...
