Maybe his realm is not too big, as there are many others of his kind here in the Texas Hill Country, but he certainly has a regal bearing, hasn’t he?

That Buck Seems to Like Posing for Pictures   4 comments

Or is he just nosy? Or maybe just wary? Anyway: here he is, looking straight at the camera.

I’m Old Enough to Graze All By Myself   10 comments

Our fawns certainly have grown, and they graze more and more by themselves, although they still like to suckle.

Here’s another picture of that Tiger Swallow Tail I posted a few days ago. This one shows, though, that unfortunately it had lost some of its tail:

It was in 2009, when we were on our honeymoon in West Texas, that we stayed at a fantastic B&B in Fort Davis [The Veranda Inn] and had lots and lots of buttterflies in the garden:

I hope I’m right in classifyinbg this as a Tiger Swallow Tail.

More Hummingbirds [1]   9 comments

After I had published pictures of hummingbirds in our back yard here and on my other blog [Pit’s Fritztown News], I remembered that some years ago I had taken quite a few pictures of hummingbirds while we were staying at the Deer Ridge Cottage [more about  that in German here and in English here] in Cain City. I’m going to show one of these pictures here once in a while. Here’s number one:

As already posted on my other blog [Pit’s Fritztown News], I was able to take some pictures and videos of „our“ hummingbirds a few days ago. Here’s one of the pictures now:
