Popped onto the headquarters walkway on our way out at dusk and we opted not to pass up taking its pic. This Woodhouse's Toad was entirely cooperative and probably couldn't wait for us to be done and gone. It looked like it might have been foraging in the grassy area next to the headquarters building.

Nos tocó la suerte de poder ver esta planta floreando como se puede observar en las imágenes del registro. Esclarecimos la imagen para mejor apreciar sus particulares.

En el transcurso del tiempo que llevábamos observamos tres diferentes especies de Tillandsia y ésta fue definitivamente la más grande de las tres que vimos pero necesita ser identificada. Gracias por adelante por cualquier ayuda que puedan extender en resolver su nombre.

Aquí en el archivo de la plataforma podemos ver que en Tamaulipas han sido identificadas hasta la fecha 14 especies del género Tillandsia aunque no todas tales especies han sido confirmadas, ver: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=7443&subview=table&taxon_id=49571&view=species

Zona Arqueológica de Tammapul
Tula, Tamaulipas, México

Nos pareció interesante el observar a una compañera mariposa parar por un breve rato como si fuese a dar su pésame a esta otra que por lo visto había muerto en su pasado inmediato. Llegó, se paró al lado de su semejante muerta, se estuvo un rato, y luego doblando sus alas hacia arriba se preparó para irse y fue lo que hizo, voló. Nos quedamos viéndonos en silencio dado lo observado. ¿Será posible? Y por qué no, creo fue lo que nos contestamos. Por lo menos fue lo que elegimos creer en ese instante. Recogí con la mano derecha a la mariposa muerta y M.T. le tomó la foto. La devolví a su lugar y continuamos el camino.
