|Look who I caught napping.|
I was going to wait until January when I begin my new project to start blogging again. I invested in a better camera, though, and need to learn to use it so I'll have decent photos.
Armed only with my new camera and a bottle of water, I braved the alligator-infested wetlands of the Sabine National Wildlife Refuge to bring you this photo of a...raccoon??? I took a walk along the Blue Goose Trail and spotted a striped tail near the top of a tree. They look adorable when they're asleep. Not so much when they're stealing your food right off the table. They terrified a little boy who was camping near us at Tyler State Park...but that's another story...
I saw no gators and I was a little early for the winter flocks of geese. Most of the birds I did see flew away before I could snap a photo. I wasn't ready for the otter-looking creature that hopped across the path in front of me. I tried unsuccessfully to capture birds in flight. This is going to take some practice.
