Though famous for its memorized caching of Whitebark pine seeds, in our lead photo Pat Jaquith shows us Clark's nutcrackers also eat hornets - in fact every hornet that was at a small water dish in her yard!

Pam Willison went no further than her garden to find these pollinators in a squash blossom and . . .

. . . a Crab spider lurking on the other side to eat the pollinators!

Skip Via found this Garden orbweaver hanging out near the sage in his garden!

Dee Blank had to actually go for a hike to get a photo of this Yellow woolybear caterpillar and . . .

. . . an always-cute Pika!

Philippa Goninan's photos remind us it is Spring in Australia and the water is . . .

. . . just fine!

In our parting shot, Skip Via poses the question of whether wildfire smoke enhances sunsets, given his sunset photo is facing east to the Swan Range!

If you have interesting photos of your outings, send them along with a description to keith@swanview.org and we'll try to work them into these weekly reports!
