Seen at Annadel Spring Lake parking area.
Saw multiple young ones/around 4cm, snout to vent, sunning on paths & rocks today.
Two caterpillars observed/pictured on Sweet Fennel/Foeniculum vulgare.
On Fountain Grove in Santa Rosa.
An area planted with 'native' low water use vegetation after development. Season for blooms mostly over, so what's visible are a few flowers and some brown seeds.
How is this distinguished from the California buckwheat?
Along Fountain Grove
Photo came out a little dark. Thanks for any help.
Which fern is that? Not bracken.
Along Brush Creek.
This may be the wrong species, the gall was on the upper side of the leaf not the bottom. It just the best guess I have.
