Spring. It's a small, small world in Central Texas. But beautiful. The prettiest time of the year. If you want to see action, look down. Butterflies collecting pollen from our beautiful Texas wildflowers. Birds collecting bugs to feed their young. Bugs working the flowers for sustenance to raise another generation of bugs. A symbiotic cycle that turns each spring.
Bugs. Scary, Halloween looking creatures that love milkweed. Harmless, I would guess, but I'm not going to touch one. Stuff for nightmares as far as I'm concerned.
I love birds. The scissortail flycatcher, especially. Lots of them at my granddad's farm in East Texas. We'd watch them feed and listen to their beautiful music each evening when we wrapped up the day.
Lots of redwing blackbirds at the Waco Wetlands. They have a very distinctive trill that is lovely to listen to. Love is in the air!
And finally, what I think are juvenile mockingbirds. I may be wrong, but this is my guess.
