Fall creatures of Texas

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,

caterpillars,

butterflies (most of which I have yet to identify)

and longhorns.

 

After watching the fabulous “Flight of the Butterflies” we spotted three monarchs during lunch.

Then we perused the Cockrell Butterfly Center.

 

Who doesn’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)
