The first thing that caught my eye was a turtle shell. Upon closer examination, I spotted what looked like some large cat prints. Bobcat are common in the area so I wonder if that is what left the prints.
I also captured some interesting patterns in the mud left by some insects. Be sure to zoom in to see the details on the one below.
Much to my delight, I spotted a wild turkey up on the ridge. I was able to get within about 25 feet of this hen. It wasn't until I had taken several shots that I noticed she had 5 chicks following along close behind, hiding in the brush. They blended in so well with the brush that they were almost impossible to see. Here are 4 of the best shots
On the way home we stopped in Jonesville to snap a few pics. Jonesville is fairly typical of the little whistle-stop towns that you see in the south. Below are some pics of some old building along the tracks that caught my eye.
Finally, we stopped along the highway, just outside of Lockhart to look at some old fire engines a collector has stored in a shed. I think these are a 34 Ford, 46 Ford, and a 49 Mack. I especially like the HUGE spotlights on the 46 Ford and the Mack. I also like that the 34 Ford and the Mack are open cab models. So cool to see the old iron.
