Localisms

I saw some Texas Starfish in the road and wondered if they're indigenous and local or how widespread the species might be. Are these critters you find alongside your roads? What kind of odd things do you find 'out back' when you go walking?

Sue, are these real? I couldn't tell from the picture. What's the outline composed of? And I can say, with certainty, of all the backroads I've walked in Texas I've never seen these.

I have no idea what I'm looking at. Are you pulling our leg?

haha! no. it's the frame from a roll of fence wire. You usually see them along an old fence line or, more obviously, hanging on a fencepost.

If you click on the photo, you should get a larger (clearer) version.
