An Orbweaver spider with brightly colored swirling markings on its abdomen. It constructed a vertical web inside a red bucket in a grassy meadow near cattle trough. It looks like it caught a winged insect. Very well camouflaged on it's "trashline-of-debris" web.

Update 4/5/22:

"M. spinipes is one of the very few semi-colonial spiders in the US. Each individual builds its own orb web with a retreat made of leaves and silk suspended inside a surrounding tangle web. A line connects the retreat to the center of the orb while the tangle webs of the different spiders are interconnected."

Metepeira spinipes is a member of Typical Orbweavers, Subfamily Araneinae

Great local observation of this species: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/3976674. Thanks @rjadams55!

This immature mouse was either eating the meat or just pulling the fur off of a dead California Vole (Microtus californicus). It was particularly small with a short indistinctly bicolored tail. Based on its coloration and location, I believe this may be a California Deermouse (P. californicus), a species I have seen in the area before, but any insights or suggestions regarding its ID would be greatly appreciated.

@finatic , @euproserpinus Is this a species either of you are fairly familiar with? Thanks!

Descripción

Mono County phacelia, Phacelia monoensis, Nevada, White Mountains, Pinchot Creek - Columbus Salt Marsh drainage, elevation 2626 m (8615 ft).

This rare annual species is a study in paradoxes. In a genus known for its showy purple flowers, Mono County phacelia belongs to a small group of yellow-flowered species adapted mostly to alkaline clay soils.

This species is found only along and near both sides of the California-Nevada boundary in the southwestern Great Basin, and is limited to isolated patches of shrink-swell clay soils derived from andesitic volcanic deposits at middle elevations in the mountains.

But paradoxically, most populations are found where these deposits have been bisected and disturbed by mining roads and other dirt tracks. Plants have been found in low densities on undisturbed clay deposits, but populations are generally densest on clay road banks that experience infrequent re-disturbance. It's even possible that seeds are dispersed between clay deposits by riding on muddy vehicle tires.

But even so, the plants do not spread outside their preferred set of soil patches, and remain rare and vulnerable to more intensive or frequent disturbance, including road maintenance and mining exploration and development activities.
