7 crows just hanging around my neighbor's yard.
This year I've seen 5 or 6 of these up here; this is as close as I've gotten with a camera...
On Valley Oak (Quercus lobata).
This spider likes to put her web right in the way of my face. After running into it 3 times, I think she's learning.
According to the sign, these abundant and regularly-spaced knots on the branches of California-grown quince trees are bacterial galls. Found an old book describing them and saying the cause wan't well-determined yet:
Lots of these in the zinnias.
Going nuts in a California Poppy. Really pollen-y abdomen underside.
On a zinnia.
Multiple bees per dahlia flower.
A few of them going in penstemon flowers.
Not sure what this is. Growing on my fence and trees as a vine. Most leaves around this size.
Ivy planted many years ago and now not willing to leave (pun intended).
Found in the lawn at Montgomery High.
Found in my lemon tree.
