Finding Cuthona perca in Lake Merritt today was totally worth lying on a dock covered in goose sh¡t. ‪

Alas, as it was an impromptu sluglab outing, I did not have my camera along, so no photos today. Instead, check out this find (not mine) at iNaturalist.org

it would be pretty cool if it were keeping down the population of Diadumene in the bay, but I don't know of anyone who has looked at that. I did see Diadumene in association with the slugs, and I suppose one could do some simple exclusion treatments and controls to begin to figure that out. 

One thing, as far as I know, reports of C. perca in Lake Merritt are pretty patchy (a few in the past few weeks, one in 2011, and a long break prior to that). My guess is that's due far more to the slug's low profile (tiny and boring, and we found most of ours amongst the byssal threads of mussels) and a paucity of observers than anything else. But then again, it also could be responding to changes in the population density of the anemone… oh if only I had more time for side projects!

Condor! near Pescadero!  Must remember to look up when I'm out and about!
The endangered bird is a 3-year-old female that flew more than 100 miles north from Pinnacles National Park in San Benito County on May 30 and landed on a private, forested property near Pescadero, on the San Mateo County Coast.

i would surely soil myself with delight if i saw one soaring. i saw a golden eagle sitting atop a huge light pole in west oakland once, and that was pretty epic.

My secret Iris spot near Bean Hollow is starting to go off :) So is the poison oak that surrounds it. Hopefully I won't regret getting this photo later...

Oh hey there! So I finally have a working camera again (pro tip: don't leave your underwater camera in its housing for 2 years…) and I brought it out on a dive earlier this week.

For your viewing enjoyment, hows about a marine worm? The tube-building polychaete worms are among the more striking invertebrates underwater in the Monterey area. The main body of the worm is hidden inside its tube, with only the gills exposed. If you get too close, though, poof! the gills go back into the tube!

I love how sideways your car got when that X-Wing passed overhead.
