On our way down from the Coyote Wall hike we found this neat lizard in the trail. It has gorgeous blue patches on the belly.
Coyote Wall hike, Columbia River gorge, WA.
On our way down from the Coyote Wall hike we found this neat grasshopper in the trail. Note the long ovipositor.
We found this bunting singing in a pine tree on the Coyote Wall hike. This was a neat new species for me, though it's probably pretty boring for anyone from the west. Lovely species, even if it is a bit obscured.
Seen on the Coyote Wall hike. I'm pretty sure (not 100%) that this is one of these two duskywing species. If anyone can ID it, that would be awesome.
The next day we had nice weather and went hiking at the Coyote Wall, on the Washington side of the Columbia Gorge.
This damselfly landed on my pant leg; I don't have a book for western species, so I'm hoping I can get an ID.
We saw several Rock Wrens singing along the edge of Coyote Wall. Nearby was a pair of Ash-throated Flycatchers, but I didn't manage to photograph them.
