Just a shell of its former self


I found this beetle shell at the base of Post Oak.

I guess the head and the inners are yum parts.

Goldeye lichen (Teloschistes exilis) with the outer layers of some seed. I actually found several of the same outer layer of this seed in several places as I was hunting for stuff with my loupe today.

Maybe an old roadrunner nest.

Silver Nightshade (Solanum elaeagnifolium) berries are always a bright spot in the winter landscape.

I thought I would share these two articles with y’all below. The second article original findings was published in Journal of the Botanical Research Institute of Texas.


  1. Judy, The nest was about 9-10 ft off the ground. It also was a place that I found roadrunner feathers this past summer.
