Sunshine




















Hello. :)  Here are some snapshots from a walk in the canyon last week where I found the creek flowing, lots of bird and lizard activity and some cacti and ocotillos in bloom.  I hope you're having a great week!

Gorgeous! I can hardly believe how beautifully you captured the hummer at the ocotillo...wow. And, of course, you have a nice one of one of my favorite birds though I've yet to see it in the wild...the P-something (desert cardinal...I need to remember how to spell that and figure out how to pronounce it! LOL)

Beautiful walk. I loved the bird at the top of the saguaro. Do you know what kind of bird it was?

It has been quite lovely the last few day. The light has been perfect.

cheers, parsnip

Darla and Annie, the bird on top of the saguaro is a Pyrrhuloxia.

There is also plenty of sunshine here as well Diane. The sun brightens up the landscape and I can see it doing the same to where you are. Lovely pictures and enjoy the sun ;-)
