The adventure continued at the Caddo NG!

Loaded with lichens! All three types are represented here, crustose (adnate to the substrate), foliose (leafy like), and fruticose (3D or shrubby).
The ever gorgeous jumping spider (Phidippus texanus)!
A tiny caterpillar clung to the Redbud’s petiole.
Yellow Star-grass (Hypoxis hirsuta)!
