Critters seen while caching

541 posts in this topic

 

With a very discerning eye by cachestacker to identify that it was a snake that was photographed, and then a resident snake (series) expert like Jayhawk stepping in to confirm the specific breed, I think this mystery has now been solved.

I finally downloaded my pictures and did my logs. I saw this gator while riding my bike along Buffalo Bayou to get New Bridge Across Buffalo Bayou.

I also spotted this little parakeet in the bushes when I was looking for Cache Deposit Box v2.0. I tried to catch him but he was too skittish and took off.

Tealcat had a camera that she liked a couple of years ago, but it was broken.  She tried a different camera, and didn't really like it.  So she went online and found the same camera that she used to have for a good price, and bought it just before we went to Australia.  As you can well imagine, the good price was because the camera was flawed.  Most of the pictures were trash--it seems to be a depth of field problem.

 

She took a few pictures with one of the Normettes iPods, but not while we were actively out caching.

 

Over the next couple of days, I'll see if we have any photos to share of the wildlife that we saw.

Saw this while trying to figure out the approach to GC50YMQ off of Terry Hershey Trail. Not exactly a critter but certainly a curious object. Anyone know what it is? I'm thinking a county mosquito trap.

http://coord.info/GC57Q4X  My Bride and I walked up to the heavily overgrown area only to encounter deep growling in the bushes in front of us.  We backed out very quickly and two scraggly abandoned dogs limped out.  Seeing they were starving, we emptied out everything edible for them, plus water.  We called every possible animal control agency, but seeing it is out in Liberty County, no one will take responsibility for the poor animals, so I called the CO, MarineBuck.  He assured me he would rescue the dogs if there is any possible way.  My Bride cried most of the way home over these poor animals.  People need to realize turning a domesticated animal loose in the country dooms them to starvation.  This was off of 1960 on FM615 between Dayton and Huffman.
