Next stop

Onto the next stop in Cooke County!

A holey leaf!
Looking on the back sides of leaves sometimes I will find critters. Lately I have been checking for mites and tiny thrips who will make their homes among the hairs. None that day that I could see using my camera.

At this stop we found Cream Wild Indigo (Baptisia bracteata). The seeds were quite shiny. And this reminded I should check them. One seed might have had a larva in it because I thought it was moving. Nope, nothing moved here. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

An old railroad tie post had a nice funnel spider web and cicada exuvia!

The wispy Elm Leaf Goldenrod (Solidago ulmilfolia) has started blooming!

At another stop Suzanne spotted a good sized spider exuvia!
Ahh nice, a creek with water! Many creeks are going dry now. πŸ™ There were some stuff that intrigued me down in this creek.
False Indigo (Amorpha fruticosa) was making seeds. But it was the red that caught my eye, a Cardinal Flower (Lobelia cardinalis)!

Suzanne crossed the guardrail at the top. Well now I had to look closer. And down concrete drainage I went.
Indeed I was so glad I did. I doubt I would have seen the Groundnut (Apios americana) from above. This was only the third location known to me!

A Slaty Skimmer posed for a moment.

So I had one more thing to check under the bridge itself. Well, you will have to wait until tomorrow to find out why I was checking.
