Marine Blue Butterfly On Algae Scum   4 comments

Marine Blue Butterfly On Blue-Green Algae Scum (Cienega Creek) — Image by kenne

In our recent walk along Cienega Creek, much of the creek’s surface water has begun to dry up, leaving behind pools
of water perfect for the buildup of blue-green scum. We noticed a marine blue butterfly flying over one of the pools,
suddenly landing a leaf floating on top of the scum.

Where Are We?   Leave a comment

Where Are We? (Doubtful Canyon) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

One hazel lost a leaf of gold
From a tuft at the tip, when the first voice told
The other he wished to know what ’twould be
To be sixty by this same post. “You shall see,”
He laughed—and I had to join his laughter—
“You shall see; but either before or after,
Whatever happens, it must befall,
A mouthful of earth to remedy all
Regrets and wishes shall freely be given;
And if there be a flaw in that heaven
’Twill be freedom to wish, and your wish may be
To be here or anywhere talking to me,
No matter what the weather, on earth,
At any age between death and birth,
To see what day or night can be,
The sun and the frost, the land and the sea,
Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring,—
With a poor man of any sort, down to a king,
Standing upright out in the air
Wondering where he shall journey, O where?”
 
— from The Sign-Post by Edward Thomas

No Passage (Doubtfull Pass In Doubtfull Canyon)– Image by kenne

At one time

a stagecoach route.

Now, no passage 

without a key —

private property,

keep out,

no hunting,

call this number —

really, out in the 

middle of nowhere.

Birds Flying, An Abstract   Leave a comment

Birds Flying, an Abstract — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Snowbirds

The big birds feel

it in their feathers

nature’s call

to start the long

flight to their

northern home

having spent

winter near shallow

desert waters.

Autumn Mountain Wildflowers — Image by kenne

Autumn wildflowers in southeast Arizona begin blooming in late October as
the weather cools, and will continue blooming until the hard frosts of
late November, early December. Scattered wildflowers can be observed
here in lower elevation desert areas almost all year-round.

Sunlight

on the forest floor

creating

a new life and

attracting

new life on the go —

buds not yet open.

Blossoms and Butterflies

In Sabino Canyon with a group of kids
someone spotted a butterfly flying by
suddenly landing on a nearby wildflower
attracting our attention as a progression
of butterflies began to fill space around us —
smiles and pleasure with the moment.
