Birds of a Feather – Hummingbird Family Tree Unveiled

 

Interesting short article about hummingbirds and their evolution.

Olive Blossom Ant Hills

olive-flower-ant-hill
I saw these “volcano” shaped ant hills beneath an olive tree, and noticed that they were constructed from tiny olive flowers. I wonder what use that they make of these little olive blossoms.

The Wild Boar

Wild-Boar
I was driving along a winding road through the California Pacific foothills toward the small community of Ladoga. There were a few scattered oaks, but it was mostly dried grasses blowing in the gentle breeze on rolling hills.
As I began pulling around a bend in the road, I saw a dark shape over on the right moving swiftly towards me. At first it’s movement and shape were unfamiliar; then it became clear! It was a large wild boar running rapidly through the dried grass. Before I could stop and grab my camera, he has moved past me and down into a ravine.
I thought that it was odd to see him alone, but he was an impressive beast. Perhaps I’ll see more.
