Capturing The Moment — Eastern Collared Lizard   2 comments

Esperero Trail Wildflowers Spring 2013Eastern Collared Lizard — Image by kenne

Another sign of spring in the desert are our reptile friends, most scurrying about making it difficult to photograph. But not the eastern collared lizard (Crotaphytus collaris), who like to pose for you on a nearby rock. I have other photos of the lizard from earlier springs, and could have easily used one of them, but this image was taken a week ago.

Welcome back, my friend — it is spring time in the Sonoran desert.

Capturing The Moment — Rainy Weekend In Tucson   Leave a comment

A gentle rain coats the dry desert. Capturing such moments in the desert is dramatic only for those thrusting rain. — Image by kenne

Desert Rain

Rain softly drapes
the trees
flowers
streets
and
the city sleeps…
Then morning embraces the desert 
in shivery hugs, misty kisses and dewy smiles
and a passionate shower of raindrops
the city awakes.
