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.

Heron and turtles








One morning last week I was at the park before school and I spotted a heron making a beeline toward three turtles who were sunning themselves at the edge of the lagoon.  Yes, the park calls it a "lagoon".  I was anxious to see what happened next.  Here are the photos.

Love this....I'm wondering if the Night Heron was a bit hungry:)?

These are awesome photos! We have a lot of Great Blue Heron in this area, and an occasional Green Heron. It is so interesting to see the wildlife natural to other areas.
