🐍Rattler Relocation! 🐍 Today our park rangers relocated a Timber Rattlesnake (Crotalus horridus). Check out its beautiful camouflage against the dried leaves and trees in the environment! 🍂 The Timber Rattlesnake (a.k.a. Canebreak Rattlesnake) is easily identified by its black tail and rust colored dorsal stripe. These snakes are the 3rd largest venomous snake in the US and are known for their relatively mild disposition.🌲As predators, they are invaluable for their role in maintaining the balance of nature by helping to keep populations of prey in check. 🐭 Venomous snakes do not need to be feared, but should be respected as an integral part of our ecosystem. . . . #fairfieldlakestatepark #picturethisflsp #texasparksandwildlife #tpwd #Fairfieldlake #lakeday #nature #wildlife #trails #outdoors #timberrattlesnake #canebrakerattlesnake #easttexassnakes #texassnakes #rattlesnake #rattlesnakerescue #relocation #snakeeducation #venomoussnakes

The mayfly is a fascinating insect! Pictured is a mayfly subimago, which is the last stage of its lifecycle before becoming an adult. After the subimago sheds its skin the adult form only lives about a day or two, giving it just enough time to reproduce. Fun fact: the mayfly is the only insect to molt after developing functional wings! 🦋 . . . #fairfieldlakestatepark #picturethisflsp #texasparksandwildlife #tpwd #Fairfieldlake #lakeday #nature #wildlife #trails #outdoors #camping #hiking #birdwatching #mayfly #texasinsects #mayflies
Y’all, that right there is as BA a piece of head gear as there is. It’s our favorite time of year! Dove season in full swing, and bow season here in Texas less than 2 weeks out! We are blessed in this country to exercise the right to hunt, and enjoy the outdoors. We dang sure have our Veterans to thank. This weekend marks the second hunt in our annual American Valor Foundation, Chris Kyle Memorial Benefit hunt for Veterans. Thank God these Veterans sacrifice for our safety, and our rights to do what we love. Thank you to Wayne Kyle and his family, Mike Willis at #buckcreekcrossingranch , Now get in the outdoors, and TAKE A VETERAN with you! God Bless.#texas #hunting #veterans #outdoor #americanvalorfoundation #chriskylememorialbenefit #texasparksandwildlife #outdoorsman #realtree #whatgetsyououtdoors #instagramtexas #texashunting @mikemo1024 #archery #bowhunting #buck #whitetail #hunter

The velvet is off and it’s that time again. Welcome back autumn. I have missed you. #muledeer #muledeerfoundation #texasparksandwildlife #texasrollingplains #canonshooter
Love the dreamy quality of this photo. I came upon Frog Pond just as it started raining. #hiking #pond #rain #texas #mckinneyfallsstatepark #womenwhohike #texasparksandwildlife #hiketexas #ilovehiking #mckinneyfalls
Early August saw some storms in the Central Texas area, and this cloud made a sunset debut. Perhaps someone could help identify this formation. I'm assuming it's some type of cumulonimbus that ran out of fuel as the day cooled off, and collapsed. It dissipated shortly after this. #smtx #smtxperience #texashillcountry #sanmarvelous #texas #photooftheday #texasphotographer #texasmonthly #clouds #sunset #cloudphotography #weatherphotography #weather #outdoorphotography #naturalbeauty #getoutside #stormclouds #texassunset #texasweather #meteorology #cloudappreciationsociety #iloveclouds #iloveweather #photography #cloudsofinstagram #instaweather #itsamazingoutthere #texasparksandwildlife #nikon #kursephotographysmtx @weatherchannel @natgeo @weatherunderground @cloudappsoc
Pepper and I explored McKinney Falls state Park today. The Texas heat was reduced due to overcast skies, but that 1000% humidity just about smothered us. My dry-fit clothes didn't dry-fit today. (Pepper was on a leash, just hidden behind her for the picture) #hiking #bordercollie #bordercolliesofinstagram #hikingwithdogs #texas #mckinneyfallsstatepark #womenwhohike #texasparksandwildlife #hiketexas #ilovehiking #mckinneyfalls
She’s always the best view on the trail. ♥️ We took the copilot stroller back and forth up the limestone covered Coyote Run trail and burned almost 900 calories for a little over 2 miles. 😳 #cleburnestatepark #hikingday #texasparks #texasparksandwildlife #betteroutside #optoutside #nature #hiking #momsthathike #texasstateparks #texas #findyourpark #findyourwild #hikingadventures #forceofnature #cleburne #visittexas #txstateparks #latinooutdoors #igtexas #texastodo
Wooo hooo! I biked, ran, paddled and crawled through caves in the dead of night last October, and my story made the cover of Texas Parks and Wildlife Magazine this month! #fitcity #getoutside #texasparksandwildlife #howlatthemoon #adventure #colorsdobendstatepark #adventureracing

Cassie’s pup Rory(at 5 months) spent a lot of time the last couple of weeks patiently waiting, watching the dove work and listening to hunters filling their bag. Though Cassie and the other big dogs did most of the work, Rory managed a few retrieves. #dogphotography #lonestarhrc #huntingretriever #dogtrainer #goldenretriever #gundog #gundogs #hunting #birddog #dovehunting #texashunting #texasdovehuntersassociation #texasparksandwildlife #ukcdogs
$48/yr gets you a 2 million acre lease in Texas. You can hunt every day of the year and in every geography Texas has to offer. Looking forward to wearing this book out. Would love to have this imported to @onxhunt as its own layer. #tpwd #texasparksandwildlife #texashunting #deerhunting #hoghunting #publicland #texaspubliclandhunting #publiclandowner

Searching for an old picture tonight and found some from the TPWD days. This is a "Turner" bull from the state bison herd. #bison #buffalo #wildlifemanagement #texasparksandwildlife
I have to get inspired by something that touches my soul, or rocks my soul. ___________________________________________ #thepumpkin #thecauliflower #enchantedrock #texasparksandwildlife #texastodo #texaslife #hiking #thegreatoutdoors #bernardbgtravels

🍁A sure sign that Fall is almost here! 🍂Yesterday this handsome fella was spotted along the park road. It appears he has been rubbing some trees! Bucks will rub their antlers on trees to remove their velvet but they also use these rubs to communicate with each other during the breeding season. Rubs are intended to be eye catching to other deer and are anointed with their makers scent. Have you ever spotted a rub before? Share with us in the comments! 🦌🌲 . . . #fairfieldlakestatepark #picturethisflsp #texasparksandwildlife #tpwd #Fairfieldlake #lakeday #nature #wildlife #trails #outdoors #camping #hiking #exploretheoutdoors #photography #wilderness #buck #whitetail #texasdeer #whitetailbuck

Very exciting news today in my email. @lilleeoutdoors was drawn for a youth deer hunt at the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge - East Lake Unit. The exciting part is that this unit is full of Nilgai Antelope and they are a permitted animal to harvest. Nilgai have been at the top of my list for years and I'm excited to take her on this hunt. . . . #hunting #texas #huntingtexas #whitetaildeer #teamraptorazor #raptorazor @raptorazor #huntingisconservation #nilgai #tpwd #youngpeopleoutdoors #texasparksandwildlife @lillee_allen02
