Jackson Beach Variety

Yesterday morning I went to Jackson's Beach, and while nothing was very abundant the variety of life I saw was amazing. Here's a sampling....

One of the 15+ killdeer:

Raccoon footprints:

A surprisingly large grasshopper:

There was a dead harbor seal pup in the surf which I reported to the stranding network, but I spared you the photo of that. Instead, here is a beached moon jelly:

An adult bald eagle:

There were about five different species of wildflower in bloom, but this is one I don't recognize and wasn't able to immediately find in the field guide. Any ideas?

The flower picture looks to me like Pearly Everlasting (Anaphalis margaritacae) -- from the book you gave me ;-)
