Had a short lunch but still explored this little wet ditch. There was some standing water in this spot, and I even noticed some little tadpoles swimming around.
Very common along forest edge.
Poison oak in fall colors. (Red plant in middle of pic)
At the waterfall.
Toxicodendron a genus of flowering plants in the sumac family, Anacardiaceae. It contains woody trees, shrubs and vines, including poison ivy, poison oak, and the lacquer tree. All members of the genus produce the skin-irritating oil urushiol, which can cause a severe allergic reaction. The generic name is derived from the Greek words τοξικός (toxikos), meaning "poison," and δένδρον (dendron), meaning "tree".
