We encountered this group of mule deer on our way up Skyline Drive one evening. Luckily we were going slow enough that I had Chris stop so I could get a photo with the moon as the backdrop. Thankfully this deer posted perfectly for me!
Townsend’s Solitaire, Myadestes townsendi–Thanks Eliana for the ID!
All of the bird photos except the zoomed out acorn woodpecker photos were taken by Chris with our point and shoot. He was very excited about the pyrrhuloxia after another birder identified it! I didn’t get to see it but from the photos online it appears to be a really interesting bird!
I did start taking more bird photos at the bird blind at South Llano River so maybe I will start learning birds a bit more.
