Observed in Puget Sound (saltwater) about 20 yards from shore. It frequently dives to feed.
Not the best picture, though the horsetail was found in a wetlands area, so I'm guessing its the giant horsetail.
A rather large, black and red beetle as shown in the photo. Seemed to seek cover from the rain under large, fallen maple leaves.
small, possibly young centipede, insects on a dry leaf in the stump of a fallen tree
Dark brown blackish small soft pinecones, probably water logged, underneath red alder, and doug fir trees in ravenna
small, short, white, individually growing mushrooms.
a ground cover plant that reminds me of a type of moss. thick and slick in texture, and covered a medium sized forest floor area.
a vine like growth of these leaves along the ground
almost looks like a large 3 leafed clover but with slightly rounded serrated edges.

Darkling beetle, while on a walk through my town of Lake Forest Park, Washington.
I saw a coyote as I drove to my house late at night. I surprised this coyote as I drove down the street, it was a smaller than I usually see but the tail was quite distinct and I was less than 5 meters from it.
Douglas Squirrel, seen dead on road while on a walk through my town of Lake Forest Park, Washington. I often see Eastern Gray Squirrels while out walking but this is the first Douglas Squirrel I have seen in this area.
I think the two trees in this picture (between them is the view of the swamp) are willows. Am I right? I think it may be a Pacific Willow... They obviously are not fully grown
Growing in damp soil away from other plants in shade- mushroom with gills
Growing up out of creek bed- five feet tall, stems long with spikes, leaves the size of my palm
Growing low to the ground in the shade of a western hemlock by issaquah creek
