Enjoying the warmth of a S. Texas afternoon,
this lone arctic/alpine breeder
was nonplussed by my presence.
I guess she figured if she stayed a few
steps ahead of me, she'd be all right!
Feeding on insects, she was comical to watch as she flitted around the
matted, dried grasses, pumping her tail in perpetual motion.
It was difficult to capture a clear picture because she never sat still.
None of the shots of her in the grass were clear enough to post.
But, further along I came across several small flocks
of these little doves, feeding in the grass.
