I think after the rain everybody is happy! The sunrise is awesome!SWF
All the little critters look a bit cold. Love the bunny! And the barrel cactus blossoms look like little pineapples. Gorgeous sunrise.
What beautiful shots!! I love the smell of the desert after the rain. :)
Fab photos, makes me want to be in the desert :)
I always love the look and smell of the desert after the rain. =) Very nice captures of the wildlife and I like the heart-shaped prickly pear pad. The saguaros look like they are stretching their arms to catch every last drop of rain. Your sunrise this morning was magnificent!
Beautiful photos! :DI love how the plants have started to light up in the first photo with the dark clouds in the back.Extraordinary sky in the last photo. Have never come across such.xD An eruption of colour amidst the clouds.
i'm in awe of your photos, diane.those are soo well captured.terrific shots!
Oh I can't wait. I think we have another weaker storm coming in this weekend. I love days like these!!!
After rain in the desert is such a superb gift.

You really capture the desert so beautifully. I am sucker for a trail and dramatic sky. Also, the photo of the cactus blooms leaves me speechless!

Gorgeous, simply gorgeous!And a bonus cactus heart!!!I hope you enjoy your weekend, Diane!
Ah, deserts after rain are a delight to the senses, the smell alone is heady. Love the shot with the cactus against the low clouds. Getting that cardinal and the other little bird lining it's nest must have been quite a thrill. Thank you for sharing all this beauty.
what do these rabbits feed before the rain? I was teaching my students 10 rabbits eat the amount of one sheep.
Our desert does the same thing... really comes alive after a rain!
I love the desert but don't get there much any more. We are very wet up here in the Pacific Northwest. We had a geologist friend and he always called the desert, naked geology. He was a great guide for rocks and the natural environment. - Margy
I never think that a desert can be so beautiful until I follow you all this while.
Fabulous captures! Lucinda was very interested in the big-eared bunny. That little bird is well-camauflauged. You capture the essence of the desert.
That red cardinal looks beautiful in there!
Exquisite pictures! I love the one of the cactus wren and the feather!!The smell must have been very special after the rain in the desert.I miss not being able to walk "in the wild" these days but no time at all...
Love the bird pic... cardinal? Wonder if the cactus fruit is edible... ;)
The red color bird picture is very cute...
love nature after rain
I can't say that I've even been to the desert! beautiful pics.
I like that heart shaped cactus and that is an amazing sunrise you captured.
I keep returning again and again to the photo of the fruit close-up...they remind me of tiny pineapples and the entire image is juicy and luscious! Until moving here, I had no real concept of what rain could mean to the desert; and no idea that the rain could fall with such abundance and force. For some reason, I thought rain in the desert would be 'sprinkles'! LOLLove your photography!
Hello! Thank You very much for sharing!
Beautiful shots..like the places
Beautiful, beautiful desert!!!
I love seeing so much life in the desert.
Oh wow! These are wonderful photos!
Where did you find the Cardinal, Diane??? What colors you photographed!
