Hopping Down the Bunny Trail?

Sure hope we get some rain soon. Friday’s rain does not count here at our house. So far this year it has been either full on or off, eh. However at least we are having cooler weather.

A broken Yellow-billed Cuckoo egg laid in the path.
Texas Spiny Lizard paused at our back door.

Bluebirds are still laying eggs!

So I just threw this photo of the Cladonia lichen under UV light because it was pretty cool. And I had just finished working on it. 🙂
Leaf-footed Bug nymphs were crawling all the Texas Thistle (Cirsium texanum).

A spider must have been finished with the June Bug. And there were several others in the path too. It had some good meals!
Hopping down the bunny trail? Oh wait… the toad trail. We have been fortunate this year to have multiple of the Woodhouse’s toads (Bufo woodhouseii)!

  1. Wish I had toads this year. What I do have is four unexpected bluebird eggs – a fourth brood for my backyard pair, which has already fledged fifteen chicks (5×3). Interesting that you are seeing very late eggs too.

  2. We have had a lot of Prairie Lizards and Spotted Whiptails. Baby Prairie Lizards everywhere. Paul caught one in a container to show Owen. Yes between him and I Owen is getting lots of nature study.
    And a funny thing, Chili came in one evening with the discarded web-wrapped grasshopper in his forlock. Guess he was going for some grass near one of the giant Argiopes. We have more of these Zig-Zag spiders than ever. But also way too many Black Widows and Brown Recluses.
