February is a great month for nature photos in South Texas
Birds are coming into their breeding season. Many change colors and I'm still trying to find some great shots.
The brown pelican's pouch turns reddish and I haven't captured that yet. I did find some pelicans drying themselves after it rained all morning. The pelicans hang out around the bay so it's a great place to go for photos.
The yuccas are in bloom. The blossoms are large, white and quite beautiful when they bloom above the plant's spiky green leaves. I thought they were starting to turn dark and die before I went scouting for pictures. Actually the tops turn to a reddish-purple color. My guess is that's going to seed but I haven't been able to verify that.
In any case, they are quite striking at this stage too.
