Along Packery Channel, that separates Mustang Island from North Padre Island, we walked along the sand dunes on the barrier reef one day to check out the waterfowl. Seeing very few birds this time because of high winds, behind a hilly dune, I spied this. It was protected from the full force of the wind. Silently hidden, moving gently as a soft breeze topped over the dune, But long forgotten...
...temporary fencing used during construction or sometimes protecting property or a barrier of a hole dug during utility work. A couple years ago, along the channel, the county built a paved area with picnic tables. This, I'm sure, is part of the left-overs long since blown over the dunes.linking to Good Fences
...looking toward the island and in the far distance, part of what is Ingleside, Texas, our bay's horizon is becoming congested with colossal oil/natural gas riggings. Spoiling a good view. But the exhaust flowing from the towering contrivances makes their own clouds.

...farther north from Packery Channel, on Mustang Island, a pond often used by feathered migrants and resident ducks, I spotted this Pied Billed Grebe. The lighting was perfect for a good reflection shot!!linking to: Weekly Top Shot - Weekend Reflections - Camera Critters - Saturday Critters
