This big fella is a little over an inch long. I believe it is a leaf footed bug, but beyond that I don't know. The photos were taken as it foraged on a pile of native limestone rocks.

I have left an acre of so of grass in my yard unmowed this spring and the wildflowers and some native grasses have responded well. Texas winter grass (Nassella leucotricha) AKA Texas Needlegrass, is a native grass which has taken over large areas of my property. Thanks to gcwarbler for identifying this grass for me.

I only had a small handful of Pine Siskins around my feeders this past winter. Sometimes the species winters here in big numbers, but just a few were around. Now, all of a sudden, a dozen or more have shown up today. Migrants heading north and they won't be here for long, but my thistle feeder is suddenly full of siskins.
