    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.

    Love that Swallow photo, at first I thought it was a Bluebird but believe it is a Swallow. Great one, in particular! They're all interesting and I can see you're really enjoying your new place - I would do, minus those Yellow Jackets.:wink:

    That's funny BB, that was exactly the one I was going to pick out! They are all very nice though and it was hard to choose. Which lens did you use TexasC?

    Very nice shots texas, like the way you describe the pond, although i always refer to Texas as "Big Texas"
