This California buckwheat species (Eriogonum elongatum) has successively shorter internodes. When bent it's almost a #fibonacci #sequence! .

Wild Tarantula! It's breeding season for this species in California. The males are trolling burrows for females. Pretty chill critters and not concerned about humans. .

#acorn #woodpecker evidence. They poke holes into wood and shove acorns in them to stash a future food resource! Very cool. #oak #woodland #bird #ecology #botany #california #californiaadventure #science

The state #lichen of #California! Lace lichen (Ramalina menziesii). Very beautiful and dripping from the oak trees here in #Carmel Valley where I'm spending the weekend in an Oak-Pine Woodland .

#Audio post: listen to the #MontereyPine (#Pinus radiata) cones! Since today is the hottest day yet this season in San Francisco and it is bright and sunny, the cones are audibly popping open and releasing seeds all over the place. It's #enchanting #botany #plants #science

A few shots of the red sands of the Simpson Desert and flying over it the next day provided an excellent view of the long red dunes! Such an amazing place! #sand #sanddunes #nature #desert #amazing #northernterritory #Australia #hiking #botany #red #arielphotography

Beautiful cultivated variety of Sturt's Desert Pea (Swainsona formosa) with a maroon center instead of black. Planted at Mary Anne Dam north of #tennantcreek #northernterritory #Australia #botany #hiking #plant #botany #red #flower

A week ago I got to check the Australia desert oak off of my #botany #bucketlist! Amazing #tree with giant woody fruits, reduced leaves that are spiny when juveniles and young plants that look like #drseuss trees or where #cousinit goes to breed. #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantsofinstagram #Australia #northernterritory #desertoak #allocasuarina #allocasuarinadecaisneana #nature #beautiful #hiking #desert #simpsondesert
