Texas LRGV Part 16. Rest of digiscoped etc...

Some of the photos I forgot to put up before...

Blue-winged Teals, South Padre Island

Mottled Duck, South Padre Island

Thanks to Jason M Hogle for the ID of this bug as Acanthocephala declivis, a leaf-footed bug. I promise that dirty finger nail is not my own, but that of a guy at Estero Llano Grande.

Black-bellied Whistling Ducks, Estero Llano Grande

White Pelicans (plus Black-necked Stilt and Black-bellied Whistling Ducks), Estero Llano Grande

I'm really enjoying this LRGV series. Gorgeous photos as always!

As for your bug, it looks like Acanthocephala declivis. They're usually active year-round here in Texas. Large and distinctive critters.
