Snow Goose (Anser caerulescens)

Description

I went fence jumping to get pics of some overwintering snow geese. Climbing the fence to the property, I fell ass over teakettle, tucked and rolled, scraped every extremity on the gravel, and banged my head. My first thought was, I hope somebody saw that or it wasn't worth it. I jumped up quickly so my husband wouldn't panic (he was waiting in the van with the dog) and jog-walk-limped a half mile, only to have some other birds startle the geese into flying off just as I got close. But I took some pics anyway, and realized my handheld camera could no longer focus at long distances, probably because of the fall. Was it worth it for the blurry photos? No. Was it worth trying? YOU BET!! And I'd do it again in a heartbeat!

Video (of the geese, not my fiasco) can be seen here: https://youtu.be/1va6_MMpJyw

Description

Matalafi (Psychotria insularum) is a member of the Rubiaceae (Coffee) family. It is an indigenous small plant or shrub that reaches a height of 2-5 m; interpetiolar stipules; opposite leaves; short, upper-axillary panicles of small white flowers; and small, glossy red, 2-seeded drupe crowned by a persistent calyx.
Matalafi is common in coastal to cloud forests environments, and it inhabits an elevation of up to 1400 m. The wood is often used for house parts, outrigger struts, coconut-husking sticks, and other items. It is also one of the best known of the Samoan Archipelago’s medicinal plants, in which the liquid extract from its crushed leaves is highly favored in the treatment of “ghost sickness.”

Is it a fish? Is it a slug? Is it a fishy anemone? I do not have a clue what this is!

It is about 30mm long and there were a few of them in the sand - outgoing tide nearly on the turn. Most were buried and only the "fan fin" was showing.

Resting on the wet sand, when the sand collapsed it arched it's face upwards (2nd and third photos) and seem to spawn capsule from somewhere - there are 2 floating in the 4th pic.

Totally hypnotic, by the time my sister-in-law and I carried on the brother had walked 2kms away from us!
