Spider with large pedipalps--probably a male?
Thought it might be a grass spider, but it seems to be lacking vertical stripes on its body.
A fat little fly; seemingly glued to this monkey flower.
Wasted some time trying to get a picture of their typical hovering flight, when I've neither the skill or camera to do this...

Another repeated species, included for the nice view of the ventral wing surface.
I don't like to add observations without a picture, but I saw this one while I was driving and didn't have a camera with me anyway. It was the first time I saw one of these still alive as far as I know.
Numerous tiny beetles in residence: see last image.
Early in the day, a bit less than 70 degrees; only heard them when I stepped under the tree's canopy to check out something else.
Lots of these flitting about a small meadow of sawtooth sedge.
Three shots of different male individuals.
