Or Oregon white?
2 different species, obviously. Guess I forgot to push"save"in between.
Yellow flies on cow poo
Found on SSU trail by pond.
Red eyes and black body with white spots.
Apparently a rare plant but quite common on the preserve. Only flowering on the exposed roadside with lots of sun.
On a longer stem in a redwood/douglas fir forest floor.
Lots of berries. Edge of meadow. Unknown variety of manzanita.
Taking a picture of mushrooms, I was startled to look up and see that a friendly peacock decided to share the trail with me. He walked me down a ways, and was waiting for me in the same spot when I came back.
Old and new growing on criss-crossed logs on the ground off the trail. Older varieties were fading and turning orange, while the younger fresher ones had blue-gray and brown rings.
This little section of shady woods may have once been dominated by redwood. Now, this fairy ring stands alone and is dominated by a douglas fir forest. Only a few bay and live oak remain mixed in. A few baby redwood are competing with the young fir, but not many, and only near this fairy ring. Certainly makes you wonder what the (logging) history was here. Will have to look around here more later.
Shaded forest floor. Nice healthy shrub with lots of bright blooms. Seemed to be the only one around. Most of the floor was crowded with poison oak and one lone iris in the area I went looking.
Unknown species of Live Oak. Multi-trunked tree. One side broke off over the trail. App wouldn't mark the exact lat/long for it (couldn't get signal). But it fell on the trail leading from Weeks Creek to Alpine Creek.
