Lost Maples

[OOPS! I forgot to post this a couple of weeks ago...]

Lost Maples State Natural Area was basically in peak form this week, with the maples, Acer grandidentatum, in varying brilliant shades of red, yellow and orange.

Actually, the plant diversity is quite nice there beyond the maples themselves. There were tons of black walnuts, sycamores, madrones and more.

Someone spied a coral snake but we didn't see it. Did catch a flickering glimpse of a Vermillion flycatcher though, and enjoyed seeing a green kingfisher and Texas indigo snake down the way in Concan.

Did you see any Clemati texensis? There's quite a few good specimens along the trails there.
