It's so unusual to get a squirrel to pose for a photo.
And it's a great image, too, isn't it Dr. K?
That Cliff Fendlerbush really looks like a species of dogwood. Do you know anything about it, packrat?
I did misidentify this flower as Cliff Fendlerbush, but I can find no evidence of a dogwood with this kind of flower along the Osha Trail. The only dogwood I can find reference to in the Sacramentos is the Redosier Dogwood, which has flower clusters rather than flowers with petals. Here's a link to some info on Cliff Fendlerbush (false mock orange); you can see the similarity of the blossoms.
More research is necessary.
