There are quite a few of these around the outer edge of this park, where we are located by the way. I was worried at first about what might be living in there.
Then it dawned on me that this might belong to mud daubers! I wonder if each of those little round balls of mud contain an egg? A while back, I read that mud daubers lay their egg and find a little spider to put in with the egg so that when the egg hatches it will have the spider to eat. Clever, don't you think? If anyone knows what this truly is...please share!
On another note, we were walking Shasta not far from the mh, and came across this little pond.
I know the sign says Bass Lake, but it's really just a little pond, chock full of these!
Turtles! As many little heads as we saw that kept popping up and down, there must be gobs of them in there.
