Ulistac Natural Area

Ulistac Natural Area


On Sunday D. and I decided to go for a little walk at Ulistac Natural Area. Here are some of the pics I took.


Mallow catches the afternoon sunlight.





Dried grasses are a sign summer is winding down.





The spots on this fallen blue gum leaf bring to mind a leopard.





A view of the wetland area of the preserve, once part of the Guadalupe River's natural channel prior to the levees created by the flood control project.





A cocklebur seed pod.





A forest of cattails.





Another view of the wetland area, not so wet now that it is late summer.





Blue gum pods.





Another blue gum leaf with spots on it.





A brilliant yellow cottonwood leaf on the trail.





Gumplant.





Trees near the riparian habitat section of the preserve.





California aster blossoms and seed heads.







Hip of the California wild rose.





More gumplant.





A bee visits buckwheat blossoms.





A gumplant flower is ready to begin forming seeds.
