Each day I find the most marvelous things in the desert
that for most people are the ordinary, the common,
the simple and tangible.
It’s important to always give the desert a second take.

Black Swallowtail Photo Essay– Signs of Spring   6 comments

Black Swallowtail Photo Essay– Signs of Spring by kenne (Tohono Chul, Tucson AZ, February 24, 2018) 

Desert springtime, with flowers popping up all over the place, trees leafing out, streams gushing down from the mountains. Great time of year for hiking, camping, exploring, sleeping under the new moon and the old stars. At dawn and at evening we hear the coyotes howling with excitement—mating season.

Watching Over Nest On A Windy Day   1 comment

Cooper's Hawk Over Nest (1 of 1) blogCooper’s Hawk Above Nest In Sabino Canyon (October 31, 2016) — Image by kenne

Wind gusts ruffle the hawks feathers while watching over the large nest
high in an ash tree in the Sabino Canyon riparian area above the Sabino Creek dam.
Since this area is near where the Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN)
conduct their nature program for elementary school children,
many students will have a opportunity to see activity near the creek
adding to the excitement of being on a field trip in Sabino Canyon.
