    Awesome, that was fast! Hey, I got your back against gonorrhea and all that! :lol: Almost sent the Birth Control pamphlet, but that could be considered more offensive, and less informative. :)
    Yes, a couple, I just have to get them off my camera! Word of warning, homie don't do landscapes. But I did see a moose. :p

    Of all the shots I took (maybe 30 total, super busy this time of year) I like this one best:

    Wuhoo! Our first photo of a critter, if I remember correctly. He's a wee little moose, isn't he? Look at those tiny antlers! Can't wait to see more.

    Oh, and for everyone who's gone over the past few months, please be sure to add all of your photos to the flickr group, and geotag a few of them as closely as possible. Thanks alot!

    Mark

    Here is one of the ones i took today. A lil history of Comanche Lookout:

    Comanche Lookout Park is a 96-acre public park owned by the City of San Antonio. The site includes the fourth highest point in Bexar County with an elevation of 1,340 feet. The Cibolo floodplain lies at the base of this escarpment between the Gulf Coastal Plain and the Edwards Plateau. Vegetation on the hill includes native ash juniper, Texas and Mexican buckeye, chinaberry, graneno, Lindheimer hackberry, honey mesquite and huisache.

    Native Americans used this hill as a vantage point for warfare and hunting. The Apache, and later, the Comanche Indians dominated the area as they hunted along waterways including nearby Cibolo Creek. The hill was also a prominent landmark for travelers in the 18th and 19th centuries. The old Spanish road (one of several routes of the Camino Real or Royal Road) from San Antonio to Bastrop and Nacogdoches in East Texas extended past the base of the hill. The road followed earlier American Indian travel routes, and today its remnants are known as Nacogdoches Road.

    Well, I posted "critters", sorta--a bee and a duck. And sparky posted a cat. :lol: But that's definitely the *biggest* critter so far! ;)

    Nice to see this going again, but some of you folks need to get busy taking pictures when it's your turn! It's been a year now since Mark first started the lens on its way, and there's only 99 photos on the flickr group? I wanna see more pics!!! :lmao:
