Texas Blue Bonnets

30 or 40 acres of Texas Blue Bonnets are right down the street from the new subdivision. Thought I better take a photo of the Texas State Flower.

Lots of people have been asking for house updates.  I know this isn’t wildlife or anything to exciting, but it is what is going on in my life right now.

I got a taste of Great Horned Owl photography a couple weeks ago.  I checked ebird.org and sure enough there is an active Great Horned Owl in one of our local parks.  It has been seen daily for over a month.  I headed out to find it and the nest.  I have gone three times and yet to find an owl or the nest.  I thought I had the nest tree but ended up being this squirrel stuff into this hole.  Oh well at least I got to walk in the woods a little.



I have been pretty busy with selling and buying a house.  Bare with me during our move to Texas.  People asked me what type of wildlife I might be shooting down there, and I am not sure.  I’ll find something to photograph down there.

More to come!
