A tortoise resting in the shade. Well he was in the shade, but I pulled him out for a better image. Image from a small tank on my property. We call them tanks around here, but in other places they would be called a pond. A yellowjacket, a particularly unpleasant wasp that is common around here. The only thing worse is a red wasp. Some fingers of God as they are called. A local park bird. A turkey vulture, very common all over Texas. These guys are all mulling over if they should flee or not from my dog Gracey.
