Nature’s Beauty and the Beast

Coreopsis

Wildflowers are blooming. Have you noticed? Masses of golden Plains Coreopsis (Coreopsis tinctoria) were nestled in a low spot out on the golf course at Dyess.

Then I spotted this Golden-fronted Woodpecker with a deformed or broken bill. You hardly ever notice nature’s imperfection because nature is not very kind to the weak, the deformed, or the old.
