It always ends the same whenever I run across racers. Bit up with a picture of me bleeding and holding them because I can't get them to sit still. Photo credit goes to my buddy Nick DeLacey.

Perhaps this is the final chapter of the baby hummingbird's infancy. The photo at top right was this afternoon, bottom right was this evening: an empty nest save for the dud egg. On the left, there is a tiny brown blob in the tree, which is the best my iPhone can do at filming baby bird approximately ten feet away from the nest on a high branch of a neighboring tree. I could not see mama, but she was making a lot of noise, perhaps trying to encourage baby's next move...

Goodbye Sonora. 💔 Our elderly desert iguana has sadly passed away but we always want to remember her as the sweet and precious lady she was. Here's a video taken of her in the beginning of the month when she was still feeling well enough to go hunting for mealworms! We will miss her dearly.

The amazing and returning Tule Elk. I wish I had captured their haunting calls. #tuleelk @naturalcalifornia #nativespecies #californiawildlife

I just took a walk to our barn to get a few boards and discovered that we have a family of at least 5 foxes living in the rafters. I told them they could stay if they promise to eat all of the destructive ground squirrels that have invaded our property. They immediately agreed. I must admit they're much more attractive than the ugly coyotes that frequently visit us.

Happy August everyone! Tomorrow we will be at the Martinez Beaver Festival, an event that celebrates the town’s resident beaver population in it’s downtown creeks and streams. We love the local ecology focus of this event, and this year we were commissioned to create both a poster for the organization running it, and custom temporary tattoos that can be collected by kids at different booths throughout the festival. Come learn about this creature that was once a common sight throughout the Bay Area waterways and is starting to make a comeback! #beavers #martinezbeavers #martinez #californiawildlife

Green peach beetle 💚
They might have a loud buzz as they fly past you, but don't be scared! These are the gentle giants of the insect world ☺️
Also commonly called figeater beetles, Cotinis mutabilis is a bug with a sweet tooth! They get their name because they love to suck the sweet juices from overripe fruits and nectar-rich flowers! 🍑🌸
I love whenever I see these guys, its not summer without them 💛

SEA OTTER PROTECTING HIS DELICIOUS SEA WEED
It's so much fun to watch sea otters. They specialize in finding and eating different foods. This is the first sea otter I have seen that was eating sea weed. Maybe he was cleaning his teeth with it; they were pearly white 😁

Not sure what kind of bird this is, but he looked very stoic as he posed for me on the beach of Corona del Mar. #coronadelmar #beach #bird #seabird #seagull #california #californiawildlife #newportbeach #southerncalifornia #wildlife #nationalgeographic
