My last post described the great wildlife in and around Shannon’s back yard near Houston, Texas. Here are a few more photos I took during that great week, including this sequence of a Great Egret making a landing in their creek.
In the nearby trees a spider was working in the early morning light.
White Ibises were all around us it seemed. Beautiful, long-billed wading birds found around the gulf coast. Their favorite food are the river snails found in the creek.
Back in the yard, Shannon’s children are finding some large grubs in her compost bed. I think they named this one Moe.
The woodland birds were waking up and we spotted this nearby Ladder-backed Woodpecker.
A Snowy Egret made a late appearance.
So our four fun days ended there and we returned home to San Angelo with great memories. Can’t wait to go back. Click on any image to see an enlargement.
