Rabbit's Relations

Here's a video from our tromp along a trail earlier this week. We think this is one of Rabbit's long lost Relations, but we're not quite sure so we brought it home to see what will emerge. Any ideas what it might be?

Here are some more pictures...

white sage gall that we brought home to see what would emerge...

Here's the culprit of both the black and white sage galls we've brought home. It's a Hessian fly! This is an extreme close-up, they're about the size of the lead tip of a pencil; tiny. I wonder if that pointed apparatus on its rear is how it deposits its eggs into the plant.

Ghost rock.

Here's a picture inside one of the sandstone caves along the trail...

Have a great week!
