Sabatia formosa or Sabatia campestris

Common.

If one subscribes to the existence of Sabatia formosa, then distribution wise these would probably be it. I have long avoided posting Sabatia species on iNat due to the great difficulties in dinstinguishing S. campestris from S. formosa on a morphological basis. From my personal observations, characteristics suggested by Lester and Bell (1980) and followed by the Illustrated Flora of North Central Texas for dinstinguishing the two on a morphological basis are indiscernible, often borderline, and in some cases probably the result of collector bias. While there is a good case for the existence of the two separate species based on allozyme evidence, I am not confident that anyone could identify one in the field without having seen the two side by side as apparently Lester and Bell did.

Amazing encounter between a hawk and a squirrel at my home. Please scroll thru the shots to see the squirrel this observation is for. Needed to keep the story in order. Did one for the hawk already.

Photo 1:
All of the action in this 16 part story took place in 4 minutes in very low light at the furthest away from my window part of my front yard. I happened to glance out and saw the mature cooper's hawk on my fence and thought I'd take a few shots. Here it is calmly perched with one foot tucked up for warmth. The time was 4:49pm on a cloudy day.
Photo 2:
When the hawk looked down I checked and there was a squirrel feeding on the ground. The birds were all in hiding. I was not worried, the cooper's usually take white-winged doves for their prey at my home and the squirrels simply leave when they notice a hawk. Time stamp still says 4:49pm.
Photo 3:
I was focused on the hawk and when it turned its gaze in this direction, I just figured it was looking for prey. I later realized that the squirrel had spotted the hawk and was making its way to the fence towards it. This time stamp says 4:51pm.
Photo 4:
It was at this point that I realized what was going on and pulled my camera back to include more of the area so the squirrel could be seen. It had climbed the fence and seemed to be advancing on the hawk. I thought for sure the squirrel was a goner and lacking in intelligence. Time stamp still says 4:51.
Photo 5:
I was holding my breath as the squirrel continued to go towards the hawk. Time stamp still says 4:51.
Photo 6:
The squirrel has the full attention of the hawk and continues to advance. Mind you, this is a mature hawk, not an inexperienced juvenile. Time stamp still says 4:51.
Photo 7:
This part happened so fast I only caught a glimpse of the action. The hawk is completely in the air and off the fence like it was trying to pounce on the squirrel. You can just see the end of the squirrels tail as it leaped on the roof. Time stamp says 4:52.
Photo 8:
The hawk landed on the fence, all flustered still and facing the backyard. I figured the squirrel was long gone. Time stamp still says 4:52.
Photo 9:
The hawk calms down and its feathers smooth and I figured the action was all over. Time stamp still says 4:52.
Photo 10:
I had zoomed back in on the hawk when its head suddenly snapped to the left. Turns out the darn squirrel was climbing up the fence again from the back side at the gap between gate and fence. Time stamp still says 4:52.
Photo 11:
I zoomed back out again and got this shot of the hawk going ballistic and you can barely see the squirrel in the gap as it dives down again. Time stamp still says 4:52.
Photo 12:
Here the hawk is looking down at the squirrel which is apparently starting to climb up the fence again. Time stamp still says 4:52.
Photo 13:
As the squirrel which I could not see yet, get higher, the hawk gets more agitated and raises its wings higher to look more threatening I assume. The gaze of the hawk is directed slightly higher too. Time stamp still says 4:52.
Photo 14:
As you can see from the hawks gaze, the squirrel has almost reached the top of the fence, not in the gap this time but on the section closer to the brick. The hawks wings are higher still and the tail feathers are stretched out. Hawk making itself look even bigger. Time stamp still says 4:52, this was all happening in a very short amount of time. I was clicking away.
Photo 15:
If you look at the top of the fence where it touches the brick you can see where the squirrel has put one paw on the top. The hawk reacted by spreading its wings and tail as far as they can go. It was more than the hawk could take. What happened next was that the hawk took off so quick I did not get it and flew to the back so was out of sight immediately. Time stamp here is still 4:52.
Photo 16:
I took my eye away from the camera and looked at the sky to see if the hawk was on the roof or a tree or circling in the air but the hawk had left the area. I looked back at the fence and there was the squirrel trotting down to where the hawk had been sitting. It jumped down in the front yard and ran up my pecan tree. It had successfully run the hawk off. Apparently I have some ballsy squirrels. The time stamp here is 4:53. On all my photos in my gallery you can look below right of a photo and see a small letter I in a circle and click on it and you get the camera exif which includes timestamps if you don't believe me. :) I'll probably never see something like this again, it was pretty awesome.

I went for a late afternoon hike to Barnes & Noble to buy a new field journal and kept track of blooming plants along the way. Some of these were in Great Hills Park but the majority were adjacent to busy city streets. The set includes the last of the blooms of a few natives, and the begining of the winter flowering season for some lawn weeds. BTW, iNat correctlly named every one of these plants as a first choice of ID....amazing.

Descripción

On August 16, we witnessed what has to rank with one of the most incredible wildlife experiences I’ve ever had. Cheryl and I were on a trip with 6 other nature photographers and our leader. We had been in the Pantanal area of Brazil for about a week with 5 days along the Cuiaba River near Porto Jofre, looking for Jaguars and other photo ops. Our daily routine was breakfast at 5:30 AM and we took off on boats from 6 till about 11AM, lunch at noon at the lodge, then on the boats again 3PM till dark. Our group has 3 boats so just 3 people per boat so plenty of room for photo gear, etc. Over several days we had seen 10-12 Jaguars. Some were very good photo ops, some poor photo ops, some just glimpsed.

There are several lodges in the area and it is a popular place to visit for folks hoping to see Jaguars, so much like Yellowstone National Park, a crowd can gather when some significant wildlife is seen, but instead of car jams to see a Grizzly such as Yellowstone, this can be boat jams for a jaguar. I have seen as many as 22 boats, 70-100 feet off shore with lots of people in each boat taking photos of a sleeping Jaguar. BUT…that is not the end of the story! We were often in more remote areas of the rivers and inlets and streams more or less on our own looking for birds, etc., so lots of times there are no other boats around. The boat drivers all have radios, so if a Jaguar is seen, other boats are informed. We move 20-25 miles up and down the river to explore, so many times other boats are not close enough to arrive while a Jaguar is in view.

My limited Jaguar experience is that some are just sleeping and/or resting and mostly ignore the boats in the river. Others are walking though the edge of the forest near the river and when a boat becomes visible, the animal just vanishes back into the forest. This morning at about 7:30 AM our three boats were in an out-of-the way location, a mile or so apart. The boat I was in was photographing a Great Black Hawk when one of our other boats called us on the radio to say they had a Jaguar swimming in the river, apparently hunting, so we headed to that area. Apparently the Jaguar, with just its head visible, swam up to loafing Yacare Caimans and pounced onto a caiman which was about 6 or so feet long. The Jaguar and the caiman thrashed in the water with the Jaguar biting into the skull of the caiman. That is about the time our boat arrived, after the Jaguar had mostly subdued the caiman, but the caiman was still thrashing about. The Jaguar was up against a high dirt bank, still mostly in the water with a firm grip on the skull of the caiman and the Jaguar was not letting go. It was very dark and under heavy foliage and vines so I was shooting at 4000 and 6400 ISO but that was my only choice. Eventually the Jaguar was able to work itself and its prize away from the vines and it drug the caiman out of the water and up the dirt bank and eventually back into the forest to enjoy its catch beyond the curious and amazed eyes of the human observers. The caiman was as large or larger than the Jaguar. All I have to say is that a mature Jaguar is an incredibly powerful predator and watching this whole 15 minute episode is something I’ll not forget. What a beast!

This entire series was shot from a boat, perhaps 40 feet off the bank with a Canon EOS 7D Mark II and a Canon 100-400 IS lens in case anyone is interested.
