Mary the Prairie Fairy

After the rains, my friend Mary and I did some social-distance prairie walking. We tromped around an undisclosed location in Brazoria County, south of Brazos Bend State Park. The ticks were out, and so were the wasps, and dragonflies were everywhere. Too bad many insects weren't cooperative for taking photos. Lots of new species today and fun with a friend ta boot!
