Hey Turtle! Look What I Caught!
This was fun to witness. The great egret caught a bluegill then walked over and seemed to show the catch off to the turtle before flying off with the fish. The turtle was not impressed.

White Rock lake, Poppy meadow
Photo 1:
Flicker in the Grass
Across a meadow from me I saw a large bird hopping in the grass. The movements reminded me of a robin but the colors were not right. I got my camera and discovered it was a northern flicker. I'd seen a female before but this was my first male.
Photo 2:
Two Flickers in the Grass
I saw more movement and realized there was a pair of flickers. The male on the right has the black mustache which the female lacks. They are both of the yellow-shafted variety. You can see a bit of yellow showing under the male's wing. However it is even easier by the color of his mustache. A red-shafted male would have a red mustache.
Photo 3:
Lots of Flickers in the Grass
As I used my camera to scan the area, I realized there were several more of them. I ended up counting 6 in all. I was able to get 4 in the same shot but the other two were too far from the others. There had been a thunderstorm overnight so I figure they were eating something affected by the rain such as earthworms or mounds of ants.

White Rock lake, Reinhart branch
I followed this bird up and down the creek for awhile.
Photo 1:
Where Did The Water Go?
Green heron on a part of the creek bed that dried up during a dry spell. When it rains this area is all under water.
Photo 2:
Tippy Toes
Green heron tip toeing thru the vegetation as it looks for its breakfast. Small fish, frogs & toads, dragonflies, other insects....its all fair game but must be snuck up on. Kind of like how I'm sneaking across the creek taking shots.
Photo 3:
Total Focus
The bird was so intensely focused on it's hunt that it didn't see me. I was on a small bridge right above it where the creek went under.
Photo 4:
Green Heron Mohawk
I never did figure out what was alarming the heron to make it raise that crest. It was ignoring me. And that one stray feather sticking out like that....I wanted to either brush it back in place or remove it, so badly.
Photo 5:
Punk Rocker

Photo 6:
Pitchfork Feet
That foot is all toes and when relaxed like this, it looks like a pitchfork. Green herons are odd little birds.

Green heron in a low tree and right in front of me. Good time to take a portrait shot.

Cousins
A yellow-bellied slider hanging out between two red-eared sliders. The red-ears are native to Texas but not the yellow-bellied. She is probably an escaped or released pet now thriving in the wild. They are the same species but different subspecies. And easy to tell apart.

White Rock lake, sandstone columns above the spillway
Easy Spider Meal
These non-biting midges are common on the sandstone pillars above the spillway. I also have often found them being eaten by spiders there. I'm guessing they are fairly easy to catch. I mostly see jumping and wolf spiders munching on them.

Wolfie
I was walking above the spillway when I ran across this wolf spider. It was eating a bug of some kind. I tried to get a better angle to find out what it was eating but the spider did not appreciate being disturbed. It took its meal and left. My best guess is the meal was either a midge or a moth.

Ruffling the Feathers
While I watched, it stood up and faced in the opposite direction then fluffed out all its feathers. Possibly shaking out mites killed by the sun.

This is My Better Side
It settled back down in the grass facing the other way now. Gave me a look as though to say: "That's better, you can take my picture now". So I did.

Photo 1:
Temper Tantrum
I had to chuckle at the antics of this little juvenile woodpecker. For several days his mother had brought him here and fed suet to him. Today the mother was at the suet basket but she stopped feeding him and was eating the suet herself. Junior fussed at her and raised the sparse red feathers on top of his head which was a woodpecker version of a temper tantrum.
Photo 2:
Junior Joins Mama
Mama ignored Junior's temper tantrum & continued eating. Junior finally flew over to the suet & continued to vocalize, demanding to be fed. You can see that his crest is still straight up. Mama does not have her crest raised. If she had been an unrelated female downy she would have raised her crest & driven the juvenile bird away. Instead she just ignored & ate.
Photo 3:
Tough Love
Mama's strategy worked. Junior finally started eating suet on his own. But as you can clearly see by his spiky raised crest, he is not happy about it.
