Dinner is served

This post features highlights from a recent trip to Ray Roberts Lake State Park.  Typically I select photos based on quality but this time I decided the theme was more important.

Bon appetit!


The spider below had a very unusual looking web.  It was shaped like a net and while parts looked quite messy, it was intricate and well planned. The photo shows one of two meals the spider captured.

While following the trail, I heard the familiar sound of an armadillo scampering through the woods.  I tried to get as close as I could without spooking it but it heard me and darted off.  The photo below is the best I could get.

Here’s a cicada I found on the sidewalk.  I was unable to determine if it was alive.

Here’s a photo of a grasshopper that has fallen into unfortunate circumstances.  There were quite a few grasshoppers in this situation.

The photo below is part of a different section of Lake Ray Roberts.  I was surprised to see so many people fishing.  It smelled horrible but I put on a brave face.  And it was worth it…

It took just a few minutes of waiting before someone caught a fish.  Excitedly, I approached the stranger and he let me take a photo.

A few minutes later the man caught another fish.  He signaled for me to come take another photo – then he proudly showed me his entire catch from the day.
