A very Happy Thanksgiving to one and all.  It is a rainy day here in South Texas, but as has been said before, there is no such thing as bad rain in South Texas.  Inconvenient?  Certainly.  Destructive?  Once in a while.  But bad?  Never.

I am thankful for the bountiful rain that we have gotten throughout the year, though saddened by the destruction that it has caused here in the Lone Star state when it came too quickly and too heavily.

I am also thankful for a year of good health, good friends, and good photo outings.  As we start the holiday season and wrap up this year, I am hopeful that those will all continue into 2016.

As outdoor activities are pretty much out of the question today, I am instead working on adding images to the portfolio and helping my significant other with the last of the cooking tasks leading up to a wonderful holiday meal.  On the photo front, I am working on images from a late March 2012 trip to Mitchell Lake Audubon Center in San Antonio, Texas.  Yes, I am a bit behind on my processing.

Again, a Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

About the Image:
Fragile Forktails (Ischnura posita) are not a very common damselfly in this neck of the woods.  I saw them far more often up in Ohio than here in Texas.  That being said, this one has found one of many meals for his day.  Using the pre-2015 Standard Gear,  probably on tripod but without flash.  ISO 400, 1/250 sec at f/10.  He and his meal are image #349 in the portfolio.
