Back to the Garnett Preserve!
The Ambush Bug and the Crab Spider on the Green Milkweed. I could not tell if one of them had nabbed the other.

New orange growth on the Prickly Pear cactus!

I love this look on the Prickly Pear too!
Ratany (Krameria lanceolata) is a beauty, but the seed heads are sorta like the grass burs but harder. 

Texas Star (Lindheimerea texana) was missing a petal.

Sensitive Briar  (Mimosa quadrivalvis var platycarpa) is a so pretty, but has tiny spines on the stem. Jeanne told me the deer eats hers. They must be tough.

Missouri Primrose withering. There is so much of this blooming along the roadsides. It is a very good year for it!

Every part of the Missouri Primrose is awesome!

Square-bud Primrose (Calylophus berlandieri).

Two-flowered Milkvine (Matelea biflora) is a host plant for the Queen butterflies.

Foxglove (Penstemon cobaea) always a crowd pleaser 🙂

This is Old Plainsman (Hymenopappus scabiosaeus var corymbosus) with black Flea beetles in it. The beetles almost look like a part of the flower at a quick glance. They are just diving in!
More on yesterday outing in tomorrow’s post.

Keep looking!
