After my visit to Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve the first thing I noticed was how dry everything was. The creek was dried up, the ferns we dusty and almost colorless, the sorrel was also colorless, and there was no sign of animal life to be seen. The moss was very dry as well. The forest lacked that usual moist feeling, everything was just so dry. Part of the forest had also been cleared out for camping grounds. It's sad to see such a beautiful forest affected by drought and other man-made causes.

I'm particularly proud of this series as it shows both the distinctive upper wing and under wing patterns of the adult Thayer's Gull.

In this series you can also see the Thayer's gull's small head, delicate bill (compared to other large "white-headed gulls", and the pale underside to the folded primaries.

These beautiful coal mushrooms were extremely common in protected nooks under the redwoods at Armstrong Woods State Reserve. While R. kunzei is common in the area, another species, the extremely similar but much rarer R. californica is also a possibility. Because separating these two species requires looking at their spore shape under a microscope, the most prudent course is to leave the identification of these individuals Ramariopsis sp.
