Yesterday afternoon, I walked Fred along the trail between Acorn Oak and South Millbend. Beautiful day. As soon as we got on the trail, I spotted a beautiful yellow butterfly flitting around. It’s pretty neat to see a butterfly in January. You don’t see them farther north this time of the year.
I stopped in my tracks and watched him root around for a while. I’m pretty sure this is the first living armadillo I’ve ever seen in my life. Oh, I can hear you native Texans chuckling at this, but it’s the truth. I was absolutely amazed to see him. Thunderstruck.
I looked for him again when we returned on the same route, but he was gone. Every time we go that way, I’ll probably look for him though. It’s something I won’t forget to do.
