A Light Rain

As I mentioned yesterday Jacksboro got a nice rain on Friday. The weather app said about .4″. Like all of us in North Texas (and many other parts) we need it. This post’s photos are from the Lost Creek Trail. This trail I bet is the most visited trail of the park.

So a wet day is why umbrellas were invented. LOL. And off we went in the heavy mist to light rain.
More sparrows today! Harris and White-crowned sparrows, towhees, several species of woodpeckers, cardinals, and doves were seen!
At first I thought the tiny acorns were galls. They were so tiny. The deer might be hungry this winter. πŸ™
So I have not spied many fungi here. Perhaps yesterday’s rain will encourage a few more to fruit like this tiny one.
Mosses were celebrating the rain!
At least two different moss species here!
Another happy moss species!
So not many of the mosses are fruiting yet. However this capsule was caught by a water droplet. Love the magnification!
Certainly the jelly lichens were appreciative of the rain!
This tiny jelly lichen kinda looked like a tiny pile of poo.

At first glance you might think this was bird droppings on the boulder. However it was crustose lichens!
So the rain did not slow us down from enjoying the morning.

However the connection here at the park is slow. So it slows me down uploading photos. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

  1. .7” here. I’m happy you’re seeing so many birds too. Water droplet pic is cool. I must be half Neanderthal.
