Holy crap, packing is making me iiinnnnssaaannne! I just wanna go play outside. Being rather nomadic, I should be a packing pro. Alas, that's not the case. However, I am a stuff sack master.
Yup. On a different note, here's some other recent sightings. None are excellent photos, but whatever. The tadpoles are my new best friends. What? Something like that...there are a few gigantic puddles where they are thriving and the other day I watched them for a good 45 minutes. (the few people who walked by looked at me kinda funny) There were tons of insect eggs (the two yellow dots next to it's head) that they were feasting on. A lot of them had back legs already and were itty bitty miniature froglets. I'm hoping to go back tomorrow and try for some more photos. I think the majority of them were Pacific Treefrog tadpoles.
The Western Skink (top photo) is from a couple weeks ago. What a fancy fellow. The River Otter above was at Patrick's Point a few days ago. I mentioned him in the anemone post. He came out of the ocean (yes, he's a river otter, not a sea otter) and started rubbing his face on a rock like a rubaholic. It was cute. i think I love him. He didn't stay long though. Nature Notes
Dragonflies are from the other day, with the tadpoles. I'm not an odes person and therefore not sure what these are. Perhaps I'll access later.
