I went on an insanely gorgeous wildflower hike on Coyote Ridge down toward Morgan Hill this morning with some people from work. This area is normally closed to the public (due to lots of threatened and endangered species) unless you get in one these once-a-year guided trips.
The ever-ubiquitous California Poppy.
This area adjoins the Kirby Canyon landfill, making an interesting juxtaposition between the exuberant springtime flower explosion and man-made mess.
A checkerspot butterfly next to a piece of green serpentine. The soil from this serpentine supports all sorts of unusual plants and critters.
Took 175 pictures before the camera battery ran out on me -- there are quite a number of good ones that you may be subjected to at some later date...
