We were working at our Rulo Bluffs Preserve this week. While Nelson was shredding brush on the ridge tops, I was pulling garlic mustard and killing small trees. I also found time to take a few photos. Here is one of a small Symphoricarpus plant (a small shrub – I’m not sure which species it is. Probably coralberry). I liked the way the light from the overcast sky brought out the subtle color and texture in the leaves.
I also found a brown snake, a bright red bug nymph, a shiny metallic fly, and more. I’ll share those photos next week, once I get time to work through them.
