Shrubs and a feather

Brian and I visited Cedar Hill State Park this afternoon. This feather’s intricate detail caught my attention. I think it must have come from one of the Aythya diving ducks.


Brian spotted this early blooming shrub, which we later learned is Forestiera pubescens, the elbow bush or spring herald. Brian’s eyes are good for more than plants, though. He spotted a roadrunner later!
