Diane, these are amazing! When I think of desert I always think of dry and sandy and barren. That witchgrass is so pretty....and it's all so green and colorful (and feathery;))

Thérèse said...

The roadrunner you met is superb!
and you know so well all the names of everything you meet during your walks!

siga said...

Beautiful, Diane! Each photo is amazing, and I will never stop wondering how many things you can find in a desert!

That roadrunner doesn't look all that happy about being photographed. Did he run away from you?

Magpie said...

I also love that you know everything you see and share that information with us. Next time I'm out walking I'll be able to sound like I know something. :) I love the witch grass.

I used to think of deserts as dead places but your desert is very much alive.

Wonderful shots. You really have some green going! And that roadrunner is so cool. Terrific photo!

Your images never disappoint! The Witchgrass is new to me. I like the pink or red tone of it. My favorite, though, would have to be the roadrunner - I never get enough of seeing them! =)

Na pustyni tyle się działo w połowie październiku, to mnie zaskoczyło. Wszystko co na zdjęciach urocze, ale najbardziej podobają mi się obrazy z szóstego i ósmego zdjęcia z góry. Pozdrawiam

Gorgeous. The witchgrass was new to me. So delicate but with such a strong name.
