Texas Hill Country Bird Pictures
Pictures from my May 2005 trip to the Wimberley area, Texas, USA. Recent butterflies are here.
Per Gil: Your satyr is a Little wood-satyr, Megisto cymela, of the southern form, sometimes considered a separate species, Viola's wood-satyr, M. viola.
This is a Great purple hairstreak, Atlides halesus per Gil! Not great pictures, but a cool butterfly...
The birds go after the back end, which looks like a head but is expendable.
White Butterfly, ID pending.
Per Gil: Your "Lizard!" is a female Eastern fence Lizard, of the northern subspecies, Sceloporus undulatus hyacinthinus (sorry, but the "southern" subspecies occurs farther east). 2015 Update: I haven't known Gil to make an incorrect ID so far, but this looks a lot like a Texas Spiny Lizard...
Plenty of Deer. This one looks pretty healthy...
