More of the desert

Have I mentioned how much I love the desert? Here’s some more reasons why.

This is a cute Prairie Dog. They build mazes of tunnels. This particular guy was photographed at the Arizona Sonoran Desert Museum; a great resource for all things desert.

There is a hummingbird exhibit at the Desert Museum – always fun to try to catch hummingbirds being still!

I think this little fella was getting ready for winter!

I think we all know the story of the coyote and the roadrunner – meep, meep!!

This desert tortoise looks like he’s smiling for the camera!

Another picture taken at the Desert Museum.

This is an old photograph taken before I had a digital camera, so there is quite a bit of ‘noise’ on it. But it does give you an idea of what our sunsets look like here.

    I didn’t either until I moved here. Desert conjures up images of shifting sand dunes, hot winds, and no water. Well, there’s 2 out of 3 here, but it is beautiful!
