Stem gall of Lasioptera sp. on Ithuriel's Spear (Triteleia laxa)
passing overhead headed towards town.
Three turkeys hanging out near the road. On their way up into the brush.
I believe it is Narcissus 'Casablanca'

I'm trying to figure out if this Coot is an American Coot (Fulica americana) or other...
This snake was dead in the road on the way to lake Sonoma. It was about 2.5 feet long and had circular spots up and down its back. Due to the area I found it in and the coloring of the stripes on its tail(light and dark brown) I was able to identify it as a northern pacific rattlesnake
There were millions of daisies everywhere!
