Texas Independence Day

Remember the Alamo!! It is Texas Independence Day today, not a very big celebration any where, Sat. there was the 1st Parade and reenactment in San Benito. I didn't know anything about it until we read the Sunday paper. We did happen to see the horses and covered wagon and police escort when we went to Walmart.
It was a beautiful day today, very little wind, temp in the lower 70's. We just wished the Butterfly park in Mission wasn't closed on Monday's it would have been a perfect day to go there. The rest of the week is to be windy again.
We did walk Ramsey Nature Park this morning then we went back to Santa Ana NWR. I finally got a decent photo of the Double Barred Flasher. We visited with one of the volunteers at Santa Ana and he told us of a nest with a Great Horn Owl baby, so we went out and found it. My pic is not good just too far away. Maybe Ken got a better photo. Ken signed us up for a bird watching class at Santa Ana Thurs thru Sat. at 8:15 am and it takes us over an hour to drive there, what was he thinking! Well, we'll see how it goes.

I caught this damsel fly at Hugh Ramsey.
