I don’t know about you people but this summer has flown by for me and mine, I can hardly believe that fall is merely 6 weeks away and I’ve seen more cool weather this month than any October the past 30 years! Craziness, so my walk August 13th was another one blessed by pleasant weather, a cool bird sighting and a stunning green spider that wouldn’t stay still for a photo for all the bugs in Christendom.
Here is what I saw……
A bright orange crawfish claw, not sure where the rest of him lay. Somewhere around the pond I’m sure…..
A pretty pea flower on the neighbors mailbox.
The woods. I love the way east Texas smells in summer, earth and pine needles and warmth. I like it so much I try to breathe thru my nose even when I’m puffing up a hill, doesn’t always work out though.
The uncooperative spider.
This is a mud puddle. This is a mud puddle in Texas. This is a mud puddle in Texas in August. This may not happen again. Ever.
So I’m trotting along the path thinking about mud puddles and BOOM!
A giant woodpecker is right in front of me pecking furiously at a tiny pine tree about 3 feet off the ground.
I froze and turned on my camera and moving as slowly as possible snapped a few shots.
He was very fast which made getting a great shot impossible for me but I wanted you to see him!
Cool, isn’t he!? I was plumb tickled!
Here is the tree he was boring into.
I’ll bet woodpeckers visit this tree as well.
Some creature, a deer probably, had broken part of this mushroom pair.
I like ants. As long as they are far away from me…….
Until next time, Have a good week Peeps!

Cool pictures! Great walk! 🙂
I loved the woodpecker. We have one like him on our property, but I don’t get to see him very often.
Yes, they aren’t seen a lot so I was pretty excited to see one so close!
