A slow day… Sept 13

Update: So the insect that was burrowing in the sandstone has been identified by BugGuide to genus. They say there are 5 described species in the U.S and the only two in our area are the Smaller Sand Cricket (Ellipes minuta) and  Ellipes gurneyi. So maybe I can catch it and see which it is. Fingers crossed...  See post dated 9-11-2020 (Perfect weather for the LBJ National Grasslands) for pics.

Top side of the mushroom, kinda of rough eh

But wait this is the same mushroom as above and see that color on the gills. Just stunning! 

When I saw this mushroom, I immediate thought the Poodle-skirt mushroom is what I would name it.

Same mushroom as above

This mushroom has such a beautiful pale lemon color

Common wood nymph (Cercyonis pegala) is having a good year.
Crow-poison (Nothoscordum bivalve) blooms again.

Obscure Bird Grasshopper (Schistocerca obscura). It has had a hard life. It was missing a leg.

Side-oats grama (Bouteloua curtipendula) blooming pretty in red!

Red Paper Wasp (Polistes) makes it home in an old bluebird box. 

Elm-leaf Goldenrod (Solidago ulmifolia) is looking mighty pretty in our woods.

And that’s all folks!
