Where am I?

This is a multiple choice question. Where were these pictures taken?

a. California
b. Arizona
c. Wisconsin
d. Massachusetts

 
 


If you guessed Arizona, you’re right!  That cactus was a big hint.  But the robins, rainwater, and green grass look like they could be in one of those other places listed.  I’m enjoying this wet wildness while it lasts.

Cute post, Diane. Glad you are having some watery conditions in your area now. I know that the birdies LOVE it also....

Great pictures.
Hugs,
Betsy

I wouldn't really have known though 3 & 4 seemed unlikely for the cactus! I love robins, yours are so different from ours, I tried to capture one with my point and shoot in Yakima, WA. two weeks ago but uh... it's a point and shoot... ;-)

How funny... I didn't even notice the cactus. I was confused by the robin drinking. Those are wonderful pictures!!

Enjoy the wetness while it lasts.

I was only momentarily puzzled, Diane.

Lovely cute little bird :))
Wonderful nature shots ...

The green was a fooler!
I bet the cactus are all swollen up too.
Looking forward to seeing some green there--I'll be there in 2 weeks. :)

The Robin is so close to me, I can almost hear its chirping.

Willie a.k.a Reptoz said...

wow. I like it when the bird drinks water.

Beautiful pictures of the Robin, and your grass is so green..

Stephanie said...

ha ha... I just said you are still right at home... then I saw what you wrote 'still in Arizona' :-D LOL After looking at your photos (daily!) so many times, I can just recognise those birds, grasses, cacti, ground colours etc.

Happy Wednesday Dianne!

How long did you sit still and click your camera watching the bird's every move! You are so patient with your walks and photography. Your wilderness has a lot of beauty to enjoy.

The Sepulveda Preserve is located on Woodley between Victory and Burbank, next to the Japanese Garden and across from Lake Balboa. The Dam is also located there.

They look like they could be the same place, same bird :)

Wonderful captures! The Robin in the fourth photo looks like a double colored ball with head and tail! I like the greenery and the water with the reflection.

I always thought that Arizona is very very dry.

I once watch a TV show that the cacti cane be eaten. Very interesting to me.

The robins sure give me a readiness for spring here in Wisconsin!!

That sure does not look like the desert Diane. How wonderful to have so much greenery and water around for a change. :)

Martha Z said...

Beautiful views of the desert spring. I love the shots of the robin getting a drink.

Luzia said...

I guessed right because of the caktus. It seems to be an interesting landscape full of surprise. Greetings from Luzia.

I'm going to have to keep my eyes peeled for robins the next time I'm back that way for spring. In all the years we lived there, I never saw one.

I really like your photo of Robin dipping his beak into the water. You caught the action at just the perfect moment. =)

Fun post! Wonderful reflection in the first photo and beautiful views. I confess I thought you might be trying to trick us, but I did guess AZ. Cactus DOES grow here in CA too ya know ... I have some in my yard right here at the beach.
Hugs and blessings,
