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.
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.
