to the lovely and effulgent myfeetshowit! May your day be filled with prezzies and calorie-free cake, hon.
We spent the day at Antelope Island. We saw, in no particular order:
bison (with babies)
loggerhead shrikes (new to my life list!)
long-billed curlews (new to my life list!)
a ring-necked pheasant
a cinnamon teal
several different raptor species I couldn't identify
some sort of little gray tweety bird I also couldn't identify
two species of lizards
numerous different species of butterflies
white-lined sphinx moths
a snake tail disappearing into the grass-type stuff that passes for vegetation
Yes, I took pictures. No, you can't see them yet.
Seriously, y'all, when you go to your state and national parks? Get out of the car and hike at least one pretty long path. You'll see things that you totally would have missed.
Of course, I have new blisters now. But it was a very satisfying day.
kantayra, did you see this? I nearly died of cute.
