The Changing Seasons – September 2020 in the Hill Country

In early September, we made a trip to the Texas Hill Country, and played in the Llano River.  (You can click on the pictures to see larger images.)

I rarely see any migrating warblers, so I was thrilled to get a glimpse of this Wilson’s Warbler on its fall migration.

I was also happy to learn a new plant, the spectacularly named Red-whiskered Clammyweed.  Clammyweeds are in the Caper or Spiderflower family, and are related to the better known Cleome.  I wonder if someone heard the name “Cleome” and just mis-heard it as “Clammy,” and that name stuck, because the plant did not seem at all clammy to me.  🙂

Once again I am happy to participate in The Changing Seasons challenge, originated by Su (scroll down through the post to find the guidelines).  She asks us to take 5 to 20 photos from our current catalog, to capture our month.
