Real Signs of Fall

Today Jack heard the Sandhill Cranes.  I hope to capture a photo of them soon.  Their sound is so soothing and it is so wonderful that we can find them here in Texas as well as New Mexico.  Here is a video so that you can hear their call.

Another visitor we have is the Black Swallowtail caterpillar.  I discovered them this morning and they really do like the fennel.  Glad I wasn't planning to cook with it.

The Gulf Muhly is really colorful at this time of year.  Nothing can beat the sun coming through the purple seed heads.
