A friend made a comment on my pelican post that it was comforting to see the wildlife she grew up around. I've thought about that a lot. I live no where near where I grew up. I live in the Midwest, but I grew up in West Texas. There are many times that I miss the wildlife of my childhood.
And Horned Toads
And even Tarantulas
You wouldn't think any of those things are pretty, but they say home to me.
