Fungus Among Us

2014-09-15 07:45 PM

Yes Laetiporus sulphureus, the Sulphur Shelf or Chicken of the Woods. It is a pathogen that causes brown cubical heart rot of Eucalyptus and other species

Chicken of the woods mushroom, maybe? Ask Dr. Bob Cummings of SBCC.

How do you folks always to manage to get the perfect shots? If I tried this I would probably wind up with pictures of the sky, my foot, oh, and lets not forget my thumb!

Watch Out For Wildlife Week

2014-09-15 03:19 PM

I'm 924P. I live in Goleta. The last time I saw a deer here (any where near town or the roads around town) was never, and I've lived here over 40 years, on the edge of farmland. I've occasionally seen a coyote cross the road, and I get far more than my share of varmints visiting at night, but I just found it amusing that we were asked to watch for animals while driving, because compared with other states, they are darned scarce in these parts. I'm more alert for pedestrians and bicyclists when driving around SB & G than I am for critters, but rest assured, I'm alert for the rare critter in these parts too.

Awesome, beautiful, vibrant pictures, thank you for sharing them!

The 'grasshopper' is actually a katydid that hasn't had its very last molt into adulthood. You can tell because the wingbuds aren't functional wings yet, but are almost that big.

Stolen iPhone Advice

If it was truly stolen call the cops, an iPhone has a value of around $1,000. The cops come in force for a shop lifter, so you $1,000 phone should get their attention.

Watch Out For Wildlife Week

2014-09-15 01:33 PM

There's a little fox that has been hanging out at my company lately. We leave water out for him. He doesn't do much but peer at us from the bushes and nap. The drought has really been taxing the animals - they keep coming closer and closer to where humans live. I have been extra watchful on the roads.

Um. um. um. Those are some thrillingly brilliant shots. I can't stop looking at them. Wow. I have butterflies and grasshoppers in my garden, but could never capture them as you did, OP. Awesome. Thanks so much.

(Next year I will plant more Tithonia rotundiflora, too. Thanks for inspiring me to do that.)

Watch Out For Wildlife Week

2014-09-15 12:58 PM

924P. Where are you in CA that you "haven't seen much wildlife?" Edhatters have shown you bobcats, mountain lions, raccoons, opossums, deer, weasels, coyotes, various species of birds (owls, hawks, herons, etc), snakes and lizards. And this is just in SB area. There are plenty of animals out there crossing roads at, unfortunately, dangerous times for them and us.

Every day/week should be "Watch Out for Wildlife Day."

Watch Out For Wildlife Week

2014-09-15 12:16 PM

928- It may be traumatic, but it's a part of life. We (with children), if possible, stop and move the animal off the road, provided it has not become 'one with the road'. This gives us a chance to honor the animal, as well as make it far safer for any carrion eater that should come later. Even if the kids don't directly handle the animal, being part of the process makes them feel less helpless and that they were a part of making a difference.

That being said, I think it's sad that this isn't just part of our everyday consciousness, and that we have to dedicate one week a year to it.

I suppose everyone is entitled to their opinion, but mine is that children should learn that death is part of life - animals die, people die, every living creature will eventually die some day.

Pretending otherwise is silly and probably explains why so many people need grief counseling nowadays.

Watch Out For Wildlife Week

2014-09-15 10:36 AM

For those of you with children or grandchildren: Seeing animals run over on the roads can be an extremely traumatic event for children. What I've always done upon seeing a dead animal (dog, deer, coyote, snake, etc.) on the road and a child sees it is to simply say, "Oh, it's just taking a rest" and then quickly change the subject to something else like "did you know that ice cream is made from milk that comes from cows?"

CA has been essentially de-wildlifed, so this message humors me. I'm alert for wildlife near roads in other states. It's been decades since I've seen much wildlife in this state.

Seriously! My teenaged son who has his permit was driving to school this morning on Foothill at 154 and a coyote walked across the street right in front of us! He did great...handled it like a pro but scared the crap out of his Mom lol!!!
