Hummingbird moth at wild bergamot on the trail around kendall lake
In a moist pocket at the base of the sound of music hill
Top of stream bank
Spooked from grasslands area behind ball fields.
Identified by vocalizations before getting eyes on it.
This fungus was on a fallen log - slugs were feeding on it.
This cluster of eggs was attached to a fallen log. They were each less than 1/4 inch in diameter. The second photo was taken with a quarter sitting next to them.
Rare; 1 plant on open, dry ridge below powerlines. A poor specimen (stem browsed, corolla torn) but the habit was clearly erect. About 6" tall.
Found this waiting for me on my boot around 6am this morning.
ssp languida; ca 4dm tall; culm without significant basal tuft; glumes obtuse, 5 nerved, glabrous except for a few long cottony strands at base
