THE MESSAGE BOARD POINT CHATTER IS NOW CLOSED TO ALL NEW POSTS.
Surface hunting at Starr I was very lucky to make this find
The temps were over 80* with a clear sunny sky and Anty Maim was just making the scene after all winter in a hole.
Maim is the Texas equivelent to Puxatawny Phil as a Wx predictor.
Near as I could tell, the message was, " SPRING HAS SPRUNG, C'MON OUT BOYS ( but beware one more late
freeze ) "
Lot of spring housecleaning dirt to bring to the surface.
And they are REALLY
I almost hate the ants worse than the snakes and black widow spiders!
Those look like the good old red ants, a good sign. They almost completely disappeared when the fire ants came in. Without their primary food source, (the red ants) the horny toads got real scarce. Now we're starting to see more red ants and horny toads down here.. Now the fire ants are the ones on the endangered spieces list.
I see the meadow muffins are starting to bloom, you know springs not that far off.
That last pic. looks like you were down in my area. Just missing the mesquites in the background
Nice shot! Nice point too!!!
What's that little white dot in the sky background?
This skyshot is especially for Idahoe's enjoyment....
This past dig at Starr we were digging side by side ...he had found 2 nice pieces and after a long time this piece is what I found. He made a big complimentary fuss over how beautiful this abreviated base of a Williams was ( red bud trees always pop early )
That's what I was thinking, the moon, but wasn't sure because of past ghost in pictures. Thought it might be a plane or UFO at first. A nice mesquite pic. anyway. It shows winter is fading fast.
Five dollars worth of gas and they wouldn't have to push the car.
