One of my favorite summer wildflowers is the Leopard Lily, Lilium pardalinum. Bob Rutemoeller and Mary Sue Ittner found a nice group of them recently.

Never pick these beauties, just enjoy their splash of color wherever you might be fortunate enough to see them.

Thanks to Mary Sue and Bob for allowing me to share their photos with you here.


Red-tailed Hawks are our most common hawks. They live year round on the Mendonoma Coast. Jim Garlock had an opportunity to get a close up photo of one.

What a beauty! Thanks to Jim for allowing me to share his photo with you here.
