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.
A lovely bit of nature 🙂
