Possibly Amphiagrion saucium - Eastern Red Damsel - but I don't wish to make it a formal ID suggestion as I'm not sufficiently certain.

I shared the link to the image with Dr. Dennis Paulson and he identified it as Orthetrum pruinosum.

If this was a photo taken in Central America I'd say it was Erythemis peruviana, a Flame-tailed Pondhawk; however I have no idea if the species is trans-Pacific.

Rock rabbits are certainly a favorite mammal of mine. Great picture!

It's an arthropod larva - of just what sort I can't tell.

It looks very much like an Atlas Moth, Attacus atlas (http://eol.org/pages/385381/overview) but I'm not aware of that species being found in Central America so I don't want to make a formal ID suggestion.

Was this at Ecola State Park? I've photographed this species there many times. It's very reliable for them this time of year.
