On Sunday D. and I took a walk on the Coyote Creek Trail between Highway 237 and Cottonwood Dr., and I took some pics of what we saw along the way.
Wild radish and California poppies.
Which one of these hundreds of trees is the "first tree"?
Graffiti, a pigeon and reflections where the trail goes under Hwy. 237.
Tiny beetles on angelica blossoms
The trail skirts the campus of a tech company that has dedicated part of its land to habitat for the endangered burrowing owl.
Cisterns are part of the Coyote Creek flood control system.
A black phoebe hunts for bugs to eat at the edge of the woods.
Girafa under the Tasman Dr. overpass.
A sign with the letter V mysteriously cleaned off. (D. and I think it indicates the proximity of a homeless encampment in the woods.)
We pass by a great blue heron rookery, with little baby herons poking their head above the nests.
We pass by a mysterious white dome between a townhome complex and a flood control station.
A fiery skipper rests on the trail.
