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. 

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

“Oh that the desert were my dwelling place,
With only one fair spirit for my minster.
That I might forget the human race,
And hating no one, love her only.”

— Lord Byron

The cool wind blew in my face
and all at once I felt as if I had
shed dullness from myself.
Before me lay a long gray line
with a black mark down the center.
The birds were singing.
It was spring.
