Crawling up and down this grass stem; licking it all the while.
Very cheerful flittering light blue in flight.
I found a few slender salamanders under fallen logs. It was kind of surprising to see them since the ground was pretty dry. This one had a unique golden coloration.
I found one Ensatina under fallen bark. Looks like an Oregon Ensatina, but this coloration is new to me.
I'd guess these two were mother and her yearling.
Saw many (counted about 12) over a few hours of hiking, but could not get a photo. Unfortunately (for the butterfly) the crab spider made these photos possible.
Leaves just unfurling.
