Best time of year! Enjoy your day! You have lots of beautiful captures! Can't wait to see the wildflower show. It should be spectacular. However, I do feel like it's going to be a hot one this year:)

Lovely! I'm particularly enthralled by your photo of the cedar waxwing … wow, so elegant … looks almost like a painting. Gorgeous.

Isn't it wonderful to see everything blooming ? I hope this doesn't mean a early summer.
Love the family of saguaros grouped together.

cheers, parsnip

Life is great in a desert.

The desert mistletoe is so pretty. It looks good enough to eat.

Beautiful flowers and birds. It's amazing that the birds can sit on the cacti, it looks dangerous to me. Enjoy your day.

I have to thank you, a flock of Cedar Waxwings landed in our next door neighbors' tree the other morning! That was my first sighting of them, it was awesome. The photos weren't that great but the experience was. You must have told them to drop by:)
