Your photos make me even more excited for my upcoming trip to AZ! I'm going to visit my friend, Mary in Rio Verde. Yippee - I hope the cacti are blooming.

Fun and gorgeous! My fave is the little bird flapping its wings on the ocotillo buds. :-) Though I also thought the close-up of the saguaro "dreadlocks" was great, too… :-) Happy Spring!

I love the marigold, and the bird captured with his wings spread.
