I took this at a park near my house.

Austin Skyline

The grass and flowers in the Lower Lower Meadow are finally taking a hold.

The Lower Lower Meadow

I love these moths. They were made for these flowers:

One of My Favorites

Crab spiders and bees like those flowers too:

Critters by the driveway between the upper meadows include a rat snake:

Very cool stuff. Working from bottom image up: I've never seen that effective a bee-mimic beetle!! If we get blue-curls this year I'll have to look for one. Great pic.

I like both your moths, too. The angle-winged one with the angled stripe is very...geometric. Excellent picture of Texas Rat Snake (one of my favorite snakes.) Crab spider & honeybee--that bee had better take off NOW. And watch for a critter called the Yellow-bellied Bee Assassin (it's a bug that also waits on flowers to grab bees and stab them.)

The perfect match of moth and gaillardia flower is stunning--I don't think I've ever spotted that moth even though I have pics of bees, crab spiders, beetles, & others on gaillardia. Your Lower Meadow is a serious nature meadow now...so beautiful and so productive. Congratulations.

And the pic of Austin skyline from the park is also lovely.
