“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

  1. * * *NOTE: Wordless Wednesday photos --comparing the size of the shutters at 3" wide (7.62 centimeters)!!

    This, we spied on our dining room window's hurricane shutter!! It's a Texas Bush Katydid. [they say everything in Texas is BIGGER! ---this was huge. I've never seen one so big.]
    THEIR SOUND
    *the sawing-like effect
    (wav sound is large)
