I look from left to right:

withered bloom

Newly forming buds

Full blooming flower

All performing the tasks assigned to them by Mother Nature, obediently.

Look at me 9.22.20

Welcome to Autumn and the beauty of this single bloom. I saw the colors and was reminded of a popsicle I loved as a kid… one flavor melted into the next… I couldn’t resist capturing it. Still one of my favorites!!! Enjoy!

Living desert hillside youngster 9.16.20

This young big horn sheep was as curious about me as I was with him. From a distance he blended into the hillside but was magnificent in his surroundings. The Living Desert in Palm Desert, CA has so many interesting creatures to enjoy…

Suculent stickler 9.15.20

Not a very glamorous macro, but I love the shadows created by the spines of this cactus… they don’t seem so daunting until you accidentally brush against them unaware of the power of their sting… be afraid, be very afraid!
