Thanksgiving was spent warming up in Houston, and we encountered a few lovely creatures on our day trips.
Between Washington on the Brazos and Round Top we saw grasshoppers,
butterflies (most of which I have yet to identify)
After watching the fabulous â€œFlight of the Butterfliesâ€ we spotted three monarchs during lunch.
Then we perused the Cockrell Butterfly Center.
Who doesnâ€™t want windows like these?
The orchid mantis is so pretty.
It was a lovely way of truly saying goodbye to the Summer/Fall season, and ease into the winter time.
(I’m pretending I never saw that cockroach)
