On a more down to earth level, I tripped on a length of barbed wire on the Caddo Trail Monday, where it had pulled up out of the ground. I marked the snag with a little flag so it would be visible. Happy to report the Mower Lady has removed the barbed wire. And I had a good reminder to watch where I walk. That was useful today when I stopped by a tree to photograph a butterfly, saw a squirrel, heard a rustle, and watched some sort of black snack slide away behind the tree. Then I noticed a five-lined skink on the same trunk. Quite a lot of action for one tree!
All photos taken at Oak Point Nature Preserve, with the wire snag and the skink at the bottom. Oh, and yes, I did think it was "bob wire" for most of my childhood.
