The plates are clearly squarish. Some individuals have apical spines.

This little creature is so 3-dimensional and fast moving that it is hard to capture in a single picture.

Lots of Blue Oaks. We're hoping to join a study looking at the effects of drought on these trees. So we spent this morning identifying all the trees along this ridge. Many Blue Oaks, some Oregon, many Live Oak (mostly agrifolia but I think maybe one canyon).

Recent fall. Wasn't here last week. Broken at the base showing some root rot. This tree was huge, and two of the other trunks had already been previously cut probably to accomodate the power lines overhead. This one tumbled into the trail. The broken branch on the trail had a large twig and mud (possibly crow?) nest inside. The weirdest part was finding twisted acorns on the tree. Is this normal? See the last two photos in the series.

Cone-shaped gall on underside of blue oak leaf. Striped like a peppermint candy. Top of the cone flexible and soft to the touch. Otherwise firm but can be popped off the leaf with a fingernail
