Writing about nature comes naturally to me. I spend much of my time in observation and sooner or later it comes out like this, in poetry, song, or art! The painting is from an online source... wish I could claim it as my own or a least have knowledge of the artist who did... but I don't!
After Kerrville Folk festival....Looking forward to witnessing Mexican Freetail Bats exit the grand living room of Carlsbad Caverns NM!
They actually live here only during the Summer months, and they come here to give birth and raise their young in the caverns.The bat populations have been in decline here for sometime, and no one knows exactly why. Today the bats number around 300,000, while it is thought that there were over one million bats here when James White entered the cavern in 1898.
As an add bonus I'll be exploring the Guadalupe Mountains...
