First Wednesday

Not only was this the first Wednesday of the month, but it also the first day of November. And of course on the first Wednesday of the month, it was an outing to the grasslands. 🙂 Though chilly this morning it was a beautiful day!

The hardy group was off to a good start!
A Queen’s Delight (Stillingia texana) still had a touch of green. This species likes the limestone type soils.
A few of the Narrow-leaf Gayfeather (Liatris punctata var mucronata) still held on to their flowers.
The Seep Muhly (Muhlenbergia reverchonii) had a glow on the seepy hillside.

Suzie spotted the Three-banded Grasshopper (Hadrotettix trifasciatus) on the ground. She thought it was dead.
However after a close look, we decided it was just lethargic from the cold. We carefully place it back on the ground. 🙂

More on the outing tomorrow.

Keep looking!
