Deserts and Beyond

Deserts and beyond...places in and around the southern California deserts and beyond. Photo taken at Canyon Lake, in the Superstition Mountains of Arizona, December 2011. A few minutes later, after the sun disappeared, these cliffs were their normal color. They were only golden for a short time and I'm glad we were able to view them in their glory.

In flight~SOOC Sunday~051511


I spent yesterday morning watching a mother woodpecker deal with her hungry babies in a huge saguaro over by Desert Ridge Villas, in Scottsdale, AZ. Hubby decided he wanted to get out of town for the weekend, so here we are! Anyway, I was taking photos of her and when I uploaded them, I saw this one. I nearly deleted it, but then decided I liked it because it showed her in action. She was moving so quickly from the saguaro to somewhere else to get food for the hungry ones, I watched her for quite a while! What a busy mom she is! SOOC Sunday for May 15, 2011.
