Quiet December walk at Circle B Bar Reserve.

A male was at the other end of the park sitting in the rain. This was the first time in 5 years I’ve been caught in the rain there. Luckily I was close to the rain shelter. The rain stopped after 10 minutes.

I was told this was a banded water snake. They are not poisonous but it was nice that it was far off the trail.

The yellow flowers were still out in mid-December. The reserve was beautiful still in full bloom. I didn’t see anything out of the ordinary though. It was a warm Saturday morning.

    Great close-ups, Dina. I know of a similar “Ibis tree” near Missouri City, Texas.
