I’ve had the privilege of petting three whales in the past two days. . . a truly magical and spiritual experience!

A highlight today was petting/scratching the jaw of a baby gray whale. It had white whiskers and no visible barnacles, as do the adults. The skin feels velvety smooth where there are no barnacles. Yesterday I was leaning over the boat railing looking down and the whale came up sideways and looked me in the eye with his/her eye. Magical! Spiritual!

The gray whale (Eschrichtius robustus) is a baleen whale that migrates between feeding grounds in the Artic and breeding grounds in the lagoons of Baja California, yearly. It reaches a length of 14.9 meters (49 ft), a weight of 36 tons, and lives between 55 and 70 years. The common name of the whale comes from the gray patches and white mottling on its dark skin.

The hunting/slaughter of these gentle giants was banned along the Eastern Pacific coast in 1946. Populations have rebounded. It’s amazing that they trust human beings enough to approach our small boats and allow themselves to be touched. The hunting and slaughter of these beautiful creatures continues today on the Western Pacific coast.

The first annual Yadon's Rein orchid leaves have emerged from underground tubers. I stopped counting after 100+ plants! The area is protected by a wooden fence enclosure between Monterey Pines RV Park and the golf course. The orchids are easily seen from outside the fence. Green basal leaves appear early Jan-Feb, 10-17 cm long x 20-39 mm wide (approx. 5" x 1.5"). Stalks, then small white flowers will appear in a few months. Peak bloom time: June-July.

Yadon's Rein Orchid (Piperia yadonii). A native orchid endemic to Monterey County that only grows in two threatened plant communities--the Monterey Pine Forest and Maritime Chaparral.

Yadon's Rein Orchid Flowers:
white -rimmed, green lateral petals.
spur which is much shorter than other rein orchids, and most importantly,
upper petals generally curve inward like a horseshoe.

Young stage: Columnar cap almost completely covers the stipe to the ground. Covered in white and brown scales. Growing in grassy previously mowed area. Edible and tasty but must be cooked quickly before the caps turn to ink.
Mature stage: Liquefying gills distinguish this species. The cap just shrivels up leaving a black inky rim. Great photo of the different stages in:

I was photographing a large Redberry Buckthorn shrub when I heard a thump, thump, thumping coming down the hill towards me. I look around the shrub and it's a large buck. He was as surprised to to see me as I him!

Columbian Black-tailed Deer is a subspecies of Mule Deer (Odocoileus hemionus). They have sometimes been treated as a species, but virtually all recent authorities maintain they are subspecies, commonly seen on the Monterey Peninsula.

O. h. columbianus has a fully black outer tail.
Bucks have antlers, which they shed, does do not have antlers. Shed antlers can be found when you get off the beaten track.

https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/california-plants-with-mystery-galls/journal/39523-california-galls-a-host-plant-list-with-links#summary By N.Asquith.
working notes:
Salix—Willow
--Willow Bead Gall Mite (Aculus tetanothrix)
--Willow Apple Gall Sawfly (Pontania californica) Leaf gall--one of many bright red roundish sawfly galls on willow. Look for tiny "tubercules" interrupting the smooth surface.
--Willow Bean Gall Sawfly (Pontania proxima) Bean shaped, bright red leaf gall
--Aculops aenigma Believed to cause catkin and bud galls [3 obs E of Sierras & SF East Bay]
--Willow Pinecone Gall Midge (Rabdophaga strobiloides) Pine cone shaped apical bud gall
--Willow Rosette Gall Midge (Rabdophaga salicisbrassicoides) There are several rosette galls on willow, and the taxonomy appears to be very confused.**
--Willow Beaked-gall Midge (Rabdophaga rigidae) See BugGuide 1 & 2& Joyce Gross's photos.
-- Potato Gall Midge (Rabdophaga salicisbatatus) large [up to 2cmx4cm] integral stem gall
--Euura sp. Willow sawfly galls that are truly on the petiole rather than at the leaf base are the work of Euura sawflies, according to S.K. Monckton, an iNat curator who studies sawfly systematics. For the present, leaf base galls can be attributed to Pontania sp. [FYI, the petiole is the stalk that attaches the leaf blade to a twig]
--Phyllocolpa sawflies roll or fold the edges of willow leaves, sometimes forming galls or pseudogalls. See BugGuide webpage.

Salix laevigata, amygdaloides, hookeriana, matsudana, & nigra--Willow: Western Red Willow [Gall] Mite (Aculus laevigatae) Beadlike leaf galls with lower surface openings. See megachile's comment here
Salix lasiolepis--Arroyo Willow: Arroyo Willow Stem Sawfly (Euura lasiolepis) stem gall

I have never seen Jeffrey pine grow together so well before. The poorer quality images is because of the lighting. The cone is closed up because it rained the night before and water shrinks cones down.
