  insect nests

There are currently lots of these cobwebby things in the trees we have all over Austin, but they do not belong to spiders. They are made by webworms. Inside those nests the worms are hatching and eating the tree before turning into moths and flying off to do the same thing again. I think they look pretty weird and Gothic. Don't walk under one in case it breaks and all the worms fall out and land on your head (only joking, that probably can't really happen, maybe).
Funny...I don't remember seeing these in San Antonio, but they remind me of southern Indiana.

A picture a day from the capital of slackerdom! (unless we had too many mango margaritas the night before). Always weird, sometimes wonderful... put on your flip-flops, grab a breakfast taco, and hop in the VW bus with us for a spin around town :)
