At least 5 feet long, this snake was working its way through the rockworks stabilizing the creek walls in Allen, Texas.
Small Copperhead probably no more then 2 feet in length
Very tiny bee or flying insect. Less then 1 cm. I have cropped the picture and you will see it is on a petal of a Lady Jane Tulip.
Small bee on Lady Jane tulip. Much smaller then a honey bee.
Large Butterfly flying over the creek. Not a good photo but you can see it is yellow with tiger stripes.
Eight spotted forester Moth
Only picture I could get. Made identification based on the white tail feathers without spots and that this was traveling in a pair. It was a small bird but I'm not good enough yet to tell the size difference between a downy.
growing wild in the creekbed
Great Blue Heron
Trying to see if I can find an ant that is not a fireant. The pictures are not the best as it is hard to focus with my zoom. I notice that they have multiple entrances and the excavation of the dirt is on one side in a crescent type shape. I've seen these in my yard before so I can get better pictures if needed.
Can you determine this hawk from this picture? I know it was far away and blurs as I enlarge. It was a smaller hawk and flew quite fast. It was taken in a suburban neighborhood.
The bud you see is Asclepias Tuberosa. Don't know if small or large in this stage.
On homestead verbena
Holes from the sapsucker all over my tree. I've never seen it so will have to look more.
Not a good picture thought
Took a closer picture of the flower. There were multiple trees growing, possibly from seed. There were not planted as they are on a steep bank of a creek. They could have been deposited by birds. The Trees are probably 20 feet and/or taller. I will monitor this one as the season advances to try and identify it better.
