Pic of the Day

White Water Lily, Nymphaea odorata:
Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge;  NW of High Island, Texas

     I spotted these White Water Lilies while driving through Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge searching for rails.  When I saw this composition I could not pass up the shot.  Anahuac is a wonderful refuge.  In April, it is possible to get six different rail species: Black, Yellow, Sora, Virgina, King, and Clapper (pictured here).

Clapper Rail, Railus longirostris: Bolivar Peninsula; near High Island, Texas
