Spring Memories ~ II
As promised: a continuation of last week’s springtime images in the desert. Click to enlarge and see details! Happy Official Start of Summer (even though this is the time of year we Arizonans hide indoors!).
Stormy skies illuminate vibrant paloverde blooms.
The diamondback rattlesnake’s camo will never cease to amaze – and humble – me.
Desert cottontail enjoying spring greens.
It’s getting a little tight in here!
Morning moon peeking through cloud cover.
It’s almost fledge time for the hummie twins (Brian and Stewie).
Also fluttering about the ranch: flycatchers (& babies!)
And we’re out of the nest (but still together in the paloverde tree)!
These Reakirt’s Blue moths congregated near a garage spigot.
Red-tailed hawk after shaking his tail feathers.
This venomous Gila Monster’s legs were stuck behind a stool until I freed him.
This scraggly, scruffy, fuzzy donkey walked right up to me during a Jeep ride. We call him Scruzzy.
This is one of my favorite Arizona lizards: the long-nosed leopard lizard.
Desert sunrise from my rooftop. Splintered saguaro spines at left.
Enjoy the outdoors while I’m sequestered inside – in the air conditioning!
