Greater Roadrunner (Geococcyx californianus)
26 June 2016
Lyndon B. Johnson National Grassland
CR 2560 & FS 900
Wise County, Texas
Greater Roadrunner was again spotted at a different site after actually leaving the LBJ National Grassland on County Road 2560, about a mile from the exit to the national grasslands that we'd taken. We spotted it in the middle of the road and as we approached it crossed over a cattle guard at the entrance of a private farm located opposite the lands of the national grasslands. This was our first visit to the national grasslands located north about 10 miles from the county seat which is Decatur, Texas. Greater Roadrunner is easily an authentic resident of the Western Hemisphere. The LBJ National Grassland is administered by the US Forest Service, US Department of Agriculture.
This ID is a bit of a guess on my part. Used this as my source.... https://bumblebeeconservation.org/about-bees/identification/common-bumblebees/
It was the biggest bumble bee I've ever seen! Wish I had a better photo!!!
Trying to identify top bee.
Animals are multicellular, eukaryotic organisms of the kingdom Animalia or Metazoa. Their body plan eventually becomes fixed as they develop, although some undergo a process of metamorphosis later on in their lives. Most animals are motile, meaning they can move spontaneously and independently. All animals must ingest other organisms or their products for sustenance (see Heterotroph).
