Hartmut...
Thanks for sharing one more excellent picture of these fantastic creatures. Hopefully the Eaton Canyon area was not to much damaged by the huges wildfires which plagued Southern California recently.

 
Thanks, Richard,
and good to 'hear' from you. The last fire at Eaton Canyon was in October 1993, and vegetation has rebounded remarkably.
