Species Interactions

For this species interaction exercise, I found a Western Fence Lizard inhabiting a Coast Live Oak (which was covered in Haircap Moss). I also found a Woodpecker (species to be identified) pecking for bugs in a Coast Live Oak. It was quite a skittish creature and thus it was difficult to get a close-up photo. Finally, I observed a hummingbird going for the nectar of a purple tubular flower (perhaps foxglove). Although the image is grainy, you can just make out the hummingbird in between the two flower stalks.
