I caught this photo at River Legacy Park in Arlington,Tx. just behind the Science center in the creek.
Beautiful purple flowers peaking through the briar next to the creek
two birds were so high in the sky we could barely see them, one was black with white tips to the wings, the other was white with black tips on the wings. Was hoping for something more interesting than a Black vulture but cannot find anything else with the white on the tips of the wings. Assume the other bird was a gull
while some may consider this an invasive weed, it sure was beautiful in mass and many insects found it attractive
all the rain has made it great for earthworm eating creatures
this is the first time I have seen this bird and unfortunately couldn't get close enough to get any decent pictures
the ponds are so big now with all the rain, as soon as the birds see people they go to the other side; hard to get any pictures at a decent distance from the subject
