The Watchers

These two House Finches were perched up high in the early dawn light, waiting for the sun to rise and warm them to provide some energy to begin their day.

Flying Rabbits!

Sometimes when I download the images from my wildlife cameras it takes me a minute to work out what it is that the camera snapped, in this instance I had to zoom in a little.

Bursting Forth

This time of year is wonderful, all the plants are getting ready to burst into bloom and there really are no more extravagant bloomers than cactii and succulents. I can't wait for the explosion of colours.

What Took You So Long?

I know the Verdins love fresh apple and orange so I try to keep them supplied. I had just put this one up, walked two or three steps away and then turned to look back, and there he was, already perched, about to tuck in to the apple. He must have been sitting watching me put up the feeder. Happy to be of service Mr (or Mrs) Verdin!

I love getting outside at dawn so that I can watch the beginning of the day as the sun slides up from behind the mountains. It is a moment of perfect peace and beauty that I always treasure.

Love Is In The Air

We have had a beautiful male Kestrel around for a couple of months and then a couple of weeks ago he started courting a lovely female. She gave him quite the run around for several days but then it appeared that cupid struck. She is now spending a lot of time checking out nest holes in the Saguaros and he is standing guard and, dare I say, looking rather proud.

Sculptural Form

Sometimes nature leaves art pieces lying around, waiting to be noticed and admired, you just have to keep your eyes open for these beautiful gifts.

Still Here

I first spotted this Screech Owl on Christmas Eve peeping out of a Saguaro next to our pool. It has been in residence ever since so now of course I can't help wondering, is there a partner somewhere that I haven't noticed yet? Or even more exciting, could there be some Screech Owl chicks in our future? Of course my enigmatic owl friend isn't saying a word.

All the beautiful Saguaros in our yard are unique in form, especially this one, from certain angles it almost looks spiraled.
