Big Bend National Park: My Gentleman Lubber

My knight in gleaming, shining, black-and-green armor.

The jaunty, yellow neckband.

Those long, bendy legs.

His large eyes, dark orbs, that look you up and down, unblinking, unnerving you a little.

His feelers, which he applies so dexterously to probe surfaces, from which he gathers the intelligence he needs to know how best navigate his way over the soft and hard places.

My Texas lubber, Big Bend National Park, Chisos Basin Campground, Texas. September 2017.

In Texas, he goes by the name Lubber.

In Louisiana, he answers to The Devil's Horse.
