Wildlife Wednesday: October 2017
Thanks for stopping by to see my Wildlife Wednesday post for this month! We went on our first family camping trip this past weekend. My husband and I have been camping a number of times together and many times separately, but this was a first for our daughter and both of our dogs. We picked Lake Whitney State Park for its location mostly. It's about 90 min from our home. As you can see, it's a really pretty lake and had a nice campground.
With two dogs and a toddler, we didn't see much wildlife, but we did see a bit of wildlife. The main one being butterflies. There were tons flying around...mostly sulfur butterflies, but a few monarchs and painted ladies. The sulfurs weren't interested in getting their photos taken. I did get a great shot of a painted lady warming herself on the camper's canvas one morning.
We saw a few different spiders over the weekend and a lot of daddy long-legs. One tried to make a web between the camper and a nearby shrub. Since we needed to be able to walk through that space, we nicely encouraged it to stick the shrub only. (After snapping a picture.)
