We’ve found these spiders only when we dig in the backyard. Edit: my husband says this was several inches under the soil surface in a burrow/hole, which he disturbed while digging. Our soil is part clay, part sand. Years ago several popped out of a series of small tunnels about 2 feet under the surface. (I’m hoping I didn’t kill her, but it doesn’t look good. She’s barely moving. Advice, other than returning her to her home, which I plan to do?) I’m brand new to identifying spiders, but I do have Common Spiders of North America by Bradley & Buchanan. This spider strongly resembles the mygalomorphs on Plate 1, but I don’t think the ranges match.

I think they were tuning up for a golden-hour performance. I'm practicing using the telephoto lens of my Canon Powershot SX50; I think this is about the limit of its optical zoom.

Avondale Park in Denton, TX. So glad to see some real wildlife while out walking! I even got a video of it eating, but I think I'll have to link to other websites for you to view it, unless iNat has changed this since I've been gone...

This guy/gal didn't want to get off the road, so I had to interact with him/her. Seemed to completely ignore me until I touched the tail; then it was all bluff. Note that it was leaving edge habitat, headed North for the dam, presumably...

Some of the fishermen passing by thought this interaction was crazy.

A fun game of hide-and-seek with this gal/guy. Well, fun for me - not so sure about the squirrel.

This has been an unusual year for squirrels; usually hard to find, they seem to be experiencing a population boom at the LLELA Nature Preserve. Of course there may be other explanations.

What in the world?? One of the visitors to the LLELA Nature Preserve shared these photos on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/LLELALewisvilleLake/). Would love to have some feedback to lead her and her family in the right direction.

In her words, "We found this at the fork in the Cottonwood Trail yesterday. At first glance it looked like intestines but there are little black and white round things around it."

Notice the shallow water standing around the subject.

Clearly dead before the recent snows; no obvious sign of injury. Farther along the road there were at least 3 other dead hogs, so I suspect human intervention of some sort. Two of the dead hogs were nose-to-nose. Shooting? Poisoning? Note: the sloping rather than bulbous forehead indicates this was wild and never pen-raised.

We were exploring an abandoned silo with a side entrance at midday. Unexpectedly heard rustling above and were ourselves scared by a startled owl! It came out, landed on the ground, made beak motions at us, and flew farther away. Oops. Photos on iPhones from Dr. Brooke Byerley Best and Landon Taylor. (Yes, iPhone!)

Breathtaking! I was watching other birds vacate a dead tree when I suddenly saw this stunningly white head and gasped. I've never seen a Bald Eagle in flight before.

Also, this is one of my first in situ bird pics with my NEW Canon Powershot SX50! I have a lot to learn about low light conditions, but I'm pleased as punch to have gotten these pictures.

This eagle was by the river near the River Outlet. Note that it is probably at least 4 years old, as it takes adults 4-7 years to achieve the familiar all-white head. Males and females are not sexually dimorphic, so we can't determine if this is a he or she until we get more info - like other eagles showing up.

I've been looking through this list (http://txmarspecies.tamug.edu/crablist.cfm) of Gulf species of crab, but I'm either enough a novice that I can't make good comparisons, or examples of this species aren't there, or there's more variation among species than I expect.

Yes, there's a hermit crab living in there, but I'm focused on the shell. I don't think I've ever found one anywhere but a store. It looks similar to an "auger" but with a flat bottom.
