We saw the sign shown above on the way home from San Bernard. Seems like life is becoming more and more cluttered with meaningless signs like this one (I mean hitchhikers may be inmates but then they may be anything else too). Other signs that I am more excited to see right now are signs of Spring in the form of wildflowers.
On the refuge’s elementary school field trips we emphasize to the kids that a refuge protects animals and plants. That is certainly evident this time of year. All around us interesting new (to us) blossoms abound. Below are photos of some of my favorites. Because the flower petals kept flailing about in the breeze, I used my flying bird camera settings mentioned in the previous post to shoot the flowers too. It seemed to work very well to help me capture clear photos of windblown buds.
