I got really restless in town today so grabbed my camera and drove around town looking for flowers and butterflies. Forgot my binoculars so missed IDing a good raptor. (Also too close to the sun and my camera was on auto-focus with traffic coming.) I did see quite a few flowers, but not a single butterfly. There were patches of white Blue Bonnets....
...patches of blue Blue Bonnets, and patches of mixed.
Back at the house I got a good shot at a female Mexican Mallard Duck. I've never seen such a clean orange bill on one before.
I have lived in the Christmas Mountains since 1976, and started my oasis in 1996. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for visiting instructions. No minors. Pet rules are the same as for Big Bend National Park.
