The above leafy branches are of Cascara Buckthorn or Cascara Segrada, Rhamnus purshiana.
This early morning scene with the low sun sending beams slashing through openings in the tall firs and pines reminds me of our das in Leggett where bands of sunlight between the tall redwoods were a daily sight.
Not many berries this year, but the Thimbleberry is still and attractive sight.

In the above photos, the individual hanging upside-down at the far left is an adult, one of two color patterns the adults around here exhibit. The one to its immediate right is a juvenile, probably the fifth instar. Note the stripes are perpendicular to the lengthwise body. The slightly larger ones with lengthwise red and white stripes are the other adult pattern.
