Arriving around 5:45, KG and I checked out the one group of tanoaks next to a pullout. The aroma from the trees was obvious, unlike at Windy Hill where I had to put my nose up to a catkin.
There were many clusters of catkins, along with the usual partially-developed acorns. There might have been some fresh female flowers.
The catkins held the tiny black beetles, like at Windy Hill. There were also some other very small insects roaming around on them (and mosquitos buzzing around). With a macro photo of a catkin, two very small caterpillars (inchworms) showed up.
