We’ve had some interesting and sometimes new visitors around the homestead this 2015, so we thought we’d show you some of them…
Texas Redheaded Centipede
Ran into this fellow next to our cattle trailer. A little creepy given its size, but this was a relatively small one as they can get to be 8-9 inches, and has beautiful colors. Apparently, their bite is painful and mostly just causes localized swelling, but some people can have worse reactions:
Butterflies, Tree Cricket, Roadrunner, Ring Necked Pheasant
Here is a video of a bunch of beautiful butterflies that decided one day to be or fly around the front of the barn, a tree cricket “singing” its song, a roadrunner that had been hanging about quite a bit, and what we identified as a ring necked pheasant—a new visitor we haven’t seen before. The tree cricket is a little blurry given the video was taken at night, but it can sure vibrate those wings!
We are thankful to the Lord for allowing us to see His marvelous works in creation!
