A fabulous collection! I am so impressed by the photo of the bee :-)

Wow, these are just beautiful. It has taken me a while to adjust my eyes to desert beauty, but I'm pretty sure I'm getting it. Of course, there's no problem seeing the beauty through your photos, I just mean when I am out in the desert myself, tromping around and keeping an eye out for snakes!

Loree said...

What wonderful cheerful colours. The reds and oranges are very striking.

Joy said...

What everyone else said! Except that I am adjusted to dessert beauty after spending time in Central Australia. I miss it, so I very much appreciate your desert photoes!

Cheryl Ann said...

Yes! I've seen some of those things in our desert, too! Thanks for sharing!

Sono foto stupende, Diane! Vorrei essere anch'io nel Sonoran desert per ammirare dal vivo questi paesaggi, questa natura dai colori così caldi e vivaci. Bellissimo l'uccellino col ciuffo rosso ed anche la foto con il motivo degli aghi di cactus. Buona primavera!

Where did you find the cardinal? So distinctive in our desert colors!

Diane AZ said...

Brenda, cardinals are common in Tucson, at backyard bird feeders and out in the wild. They sure do stand out with their bright red feathers!
