Beautiful images, Diane. The agave seem to be a popular feeding station for the birds.

Love the photos.
You always post the best bird shots. Is this agave in your yard ?

I had two very old and huge Century Plants, in the back yard they were like art in my garden. One of them bloomed 2 years ago, the stalk was huge and although beautiful they die after they bloom, I was so sad.
Have a lovely but it will be hot weekend !

cheers, parsnip

Hi Parsnip, this agave is by the entrance to the visitor center at Sabino Canyon. :)

Hey!!! Those are amazing!!! There is an agave on Orange Grove and 1st that makes me go ooooohhhh everytime I see it. But because it's in the middle of the street, I can't stop. But I've wanted to snap a shot of that beauty for a couple weeks now. The hummingbirds is icing on the cake. I love your pictures! You get some great wildlife shots.

Exquisite...! You reveal so much of the desert wonders and mysteries...

You take the most beautiful pictures. While in Strawberry this weekend, I saw several of these plants dried and shellacked and used as display stands. They were striking.

They can be as big as a bird, and as small as a bee.
