Sniper John hunts them. I have seen them in Taylor county, but never in Runnels county.

Those are good. But those last two (up close) are great. Glad you post some of you stuff. You do a good job with it.

Great pics!

I have seen one of these one time on part of my property that was flooded in eastland county... Had to look it up to figure out what it was!
