Observed in Puget Sound (saltwater) about 20 yards from shore. It frequently dives to feed.
A rather large, black and red beetle as shown in the photo. Seemed to seek cover from the rain under large, fallen maple leaves.
Sequoia sempervirens Coast redwood growing in Lake Forest Park, Washington. I noticed this tree on one of my frequent walking routes, I must have walked past it hundreds of times without paying attention.
This tree is well outside it's natural range (California coast) but it seems to be doing well.
this is one of the main attraction in seattle aquarium and it is marine mammals and it is so adorable.
Found this annoying flies at my friends apartment. since it is summer we can see a lot of flies.
when i jog around kerry park i saw this cute squirrel eating his food and luckily managed to take a good picture
Was originally deep in the sand, placed back into the water and it slowly pulled its tongue out...
Some live barnacles, some dead.
During the morning-afternoon, I saw a raccoon crossing the road. Was able to only take a picture of its tail as it went into the bushes.
Some clams were open, some were closed. It closes when it gets disturbed (poked).
It looks triangular and blends into the sand very well (so I'm guessing that's where it likes to hide/live). It is located on the left hand side of the picture. It was swimming on it's back at one point so you can be able to see the front portion (skeletal parts) of the creature. This was during low tide, it's very small. It reminded me of a tiny moth.
