We keyed this plant while we were practicing for our third quiz.
some kind of bird of prey soaring over my house, very large.
on azalea flower
apparently likes thistle seeds from the finch feeder
brown rat, large and cute hanging out by my bird feeder
Shrubs, leathery leaves, entire leave margines, raceme flower, creamy white colored.
Bombus on Camassia quamash (camas lilly)
Saw a pair of them. Maybe a male and a female pair. They bounced around on the ground and ate seeds that fell out of the bird feeder. If I got too close, then they would run/fly to the bushes and hide.
Male, singing. Wouldn't let me get very close. He would fly away every time I got close and then come back and sing some more in the Dogwood tree.
Found on a cultivated lupine leaf in the middle of Seattle. Yellow-striped Armyworm Moth (Spodoptera ornithogalli)
Absolutely ravenous flock at the feeder. Coming daily, fighting off the siskins.
Perhaps O. lignaria? Seems we often find them in the city proper.
Female, due to the short antennae.
Common understory shrub.
Giant cabbage with big leaves, found near bottom of hill at Madrona Park. At the bottom of some stairs.
