A brownish moth was flying around at Garner State Park and suddenly went to ground, seemingly vanishing. Close inspection revealed this oak moth‘s excellent camouflage among the dead leaves of the park.
We visited Garner State Park mid March. This Texas State Park lies on the Frio River, an hour or two’s drive from San Antonio. There are extensive camp grounds and many recreational opportunites afforded by the river and surrounding hills. On a very hot day we could just get a flavour of this picturesque area, see the following photos.
This impressive and popular park was built as a New Deal job creation project and is named after John Nance Garner, who served as Roosevelt’s vice-president from 1933-1941. This is a model for government action when times are hard for the people. Thousands benefit from this historic government investment every day.
The good old Texan attitude to covid-prevention is shown on the sign on the back of a camped pickup, see featured image.
