If you like excellent nature and aviation photos, then you need to check out the work  of Ned Harris on Flickr.  Ned a is retired Aerospace Engineer, a Sabino Canyon Volunteer Nationalist (SCVN) and photographer. He also just happens to be my SCVN mentor — I’m getting a two-for-one deal as I go through the SCVN training.

“Do You Know Your Burroweed vs. Burro Brush?”   3 comments

Do You Know Your Burroweed vs. Burro Brush? With the help of my SCVN mentor, Ned Harris, and other naturalists, I’m slowly learning about these two plants in Sabino Canyon. One of the best ways I learn is by photographing the plant(s) and posting them on this blog.

Burroweed was more in bloom a few weeks ago, the greener Burro Brush blooms in the spring. So, this is not the best time of the year to photograph these two plants in the Sunflower Family. Click here to see an image taken by Carol Tornow (SCVN) and posted on Anne Green’s (SCVN) Sabino Canyon blog. The Sabino Canyon blog is a great learning source for those of us trying to increase our knowledge of nature in the Sonoran Desert.

Capturing The Moment — Ned’s Prairie Falcon   Leave a comment

Prairie Falcon — Image by Ned Harris

Ned Harris is an excellent photographer. You can see for yourself by going to his Flickr site.

Since Ned is my SCVN mentor and leads nature walks, I’ve had opportunities to learn a lot from him. Like all excellent photographers, Ned doesn’t just wait for photo-opts, he creates opportunities by staying alert in his environment. Yesterday, Ned was returning home, when a few blocks from his house, he saw this prairie falcon — racing home, he returned to capture several images.
