Thousand Trails Medina Lake RV Resort, Lakehills Texas – Day 16

Mary remains at home in California tending to medical and personal business issues. She has made her airline reservations to join me at Harlingen, Texas on January 3, 2013.

The motorhome is parked at Thousand Trails about 40 miles west of San Antonio.

Since I’ve been here, I’ve been showing lots of photos of the abundant deer in this area. Two days ago I showed photos of the difficult to capture red squirrel. Well, today’s subject is even more difficult to capture, because they rarely stop moving.

You may not know that professional wildlife photographers frequently bait the area to attract the animals, sit for hours in a photo blind, with very sturdy tripods and very long zoom lenses.

I am not that dedicated. Today’s photos were shot by myself and all were hand-held shots. You have to be really lucky and fast to capture hand-held photos of these birds.

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…











Enjoying beautiful animals in nature is another joy of the full-time RVing lifestyle!

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
