Quite a few of these conspicuous, day-flying geometrids were flitting about along the hiking trail. I probably saw about 10 in just a 0.25 mi hike, but they were difficult to photograph.

Chirpy little bird, not sure where to start identifying it. Found along Lakes Trail of Coldwater Lake near Mt. St Helens. Flew off immediately after the picture with a bunch of its buds, but the rest didn't seem so ruffled.

Unsure of this plant, looks like a red dull oregon grape, but I am not sure. Found in a dry, dusty environment along the edge of Coldwater Lake.

A good shot of a butterfly seen along the Lakes Trail near Mt. St Helens Washington. The area is very dry, with the ground being a brown sandy dirt color, a seemingly fitting environment for a butterfly of this coloring.

Seen around the Hummocks Trial near Coldwater Lake, created by Mt. St. Helen's in 1980. After hearing a loud splash, I turned around to see the beaver in the distance swimming just offshore. It did not get out of the water in a place visible to me, so the only picture is distant and the details of the species are vague, but it was hefty and my guess is American Beaver.
