Poor thing got their hands seriously stuck to a spider's web, struggled a lot, and surprisingly quickly died. I didn't see a spider, but perhaps they struck during the struggle, then wandered off to wait. I couldn't help but do a photo shoot of this gorgeous wasp, before returning them to the web, just in case.

Description

I found this 10 mm long aeolid in the low intertidal on the south side of Chetco Point, Oregon in July 1996. After photographing and taking notes on the living specimen I preserved and sent it to Terry Gosliner, who made SEMs of its jaws and radula and identified it in late 2010 as a Eubranchus. CASIZ 114833.

This is the only specimen I have ever found of this species, which appears to be unique among NE Pacific aeolids for its color pattern (smooth rhinophores translucent distally and burgundy red proximally; cerata with encrusting white tips and a narrow subapical band of encrusting red, and cerata cores varying from orange distally to red proximally. The brown mandibles were visible through the head, and I had also noted that the viscera, including a pale pink-cream ovotestis, were visible through the body wall which lacked pigment, but in this image, scanned from a print from 35 mm film, appears a little more opaque than it actually was).

Undescribed species, or an introduced one? Brookings Harbor, with some commercial fishing boats, is close by and might have provided a vector, and Chetco Pt. and Brookings are nestled in a coastal bight that likely has an upwelling shadow fostering local retention of planktonic larvae.

I would be very interested in hearing if anyone recognizes this species!

I was watching a tiny hummingbird (approx. 1" tall) perched on a limb. Then, all of a sudden, I noticed this pygmy owl sitting on an adjacent branch looking straight at me with its bright yellow eyes. It was about the size of my fist (4" x 2.5"). Its belly was white; its head and back were brown.

These are terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad photos. The owl looks like a blob. I forgot my camera battery, so I was reduced to using my old cellphone camera, which takes awful pictures. A one-in-a-million chance and I blew it. 😢 This is only the 2nd time in my life I've seen an owl in the wild.

In addition to the hummingbird and owl, there were two Bewick's wrens and a couple of smaller birds in the same tree.
