Oh the fat finch, the bluebird, the sunset - I am glad we don't have to pick a favorite! Diane, I love your sites in the desert.

I am in awe of these pictures. I wish I could say I had a favorite, but I can honestly say they are ALL my favorites!!!

Fab photos. Wow. I particularly love the contrasting nature of the dusky prickly cactus with the flowing delicacy of the vibrant green branches...wonderful.

Hi Linda, Great to hear from you... I love your Arizona photos... That dark blue sky is always so pretty...

Two people recently have been talking about all of the Hummingbirds in Tucson. Do you have a hummingbird feeder out???? They would love it..

Merry Christmas.
Hugs,

Great pictures -- all of them, but especially the jackrabbit and the paperflowers. And there is something I really like about the cholla cactus skeleton. Your photography does a fantastic job capturing the beauty of the Southwest.
