Tight mushroom cluster at side of a forest path
next to a logging road in an open area
in a forest path. I think there are mushrooms not yet extended and ones already extended in this photo.
Hedge nettle or Stachys cooleyae in the damp salt marsh of the estuary.
Geranium viscosissimum or Sticky Geranium or Crane's Bill. Found in a wet section of the salt marsh.
Black and brown beetle approximately the same size as a ladybug. Onthophagus nuchicornis, a member of Scarabs - thanks for the ID help, 'Acryptozoo' help.
A pod of Orca heading north past Campbell River.
Eagle at the 50th Lat.
Purple Martins at nest boxes in the Campbell River estuary.
American Robin having a bath in the river.
Yellow Warbler singing in alder.
All along the logging roads in drier spots. Berries seem sweeter this year although more mealy than those I have found in the interior of the province.
Growing wild all over the rocky outcrops.
Marine sponge. Common in current-swept channels in British Columbia such as Discovery Passage and Sechelt Rapids. Usually lumpy in texture and orange in colour.
