Normally in 2020, this would be a bad place to be "up a creek", BUT today...well, we went up a creek and it was wonderful on the LBJ National Grasslands.
Also of note, I saw 100+ White Pelicans, 100+ Monarchs (most at the grasslands), and one Yellow-shafted Flicker today. House Wrens started showing a week ago.
Southern shield fern (Thelypteris kunthii). We found 8 or so plants of these along the creek bed. A new fern for Wise County and the grasslands.
So if you are up a creek, maybe turn the volume up and listen to it.
The morning started off with some cool clouds. Just love the patterns.
You never know what you can find!
Yesterday, Jeanne brought me a walkingstick bug to take photos of it. I was missing a closeup in my photo collection. First thing I noticed when I got home and looked in the container was that the bug had bent itself midway in the body at a 45 degree angle. I wondered, could a walkingstick do that?
The answer is.....it was not a walkingstick!
