This is going to take some concentration, so focus please.
Follow the petal of this spider lilly that goes to your left --about half way out you will see just a trace of spider web. To the other side follow the petals that go up to the right -- where they split, if you look real closely you will see a small grasshopper.
Lot of activity on this spindly little flower ain't there. Seems with a close look, there is always more than meets the eye.
The flower was on one of the "canals" off of the Neches River, above the I-10 (part of the Big Thicket Nature Preserve. I was out this weekend with Dr. Richard Bothel with the Environmental Learning Center. Beautiful stuff out there.
