We have two Cara Caras that hang out around the Sparkle Farm. I have not seen them in quite a few months, but they paid us a visit this morning.
Take a look at this monster in Walnut Creek. I counted over 70 carp today and one giant catfish.
I hope this little giant makes it to moth. Eacles imperialis, or Imperial Moth. I think he got nipped by a bird.
Some folks around Central Texas may have noticed a lot of sweet, peppy chirping throughout the nights. Not the droning grind of crickets and cicadas, more like an inconceivably pleasant Mariah Carey swallowed her squeaky chew toy. This relatively new transplant to our area is called the
Rio Grande Chirping Frog or Eleutherodactylus cystignathoides
I find their songs to be pretty soothing at night, which is a bonus because Sparkle Farm is littered with the tiny tenors.
