Also, the clouds covering the Santa Catalina Mountains have moved on.

Caught On the Run in Sabino Canyon — Image by kenne

First, there was the clicking, 

A sound caused by bill rattling.

Quickly, he had my attention

When I saw him on the run

Through the dry desert grass.

Snow At Lower Elevations Of The Santa Catalina Mountains   Leave a comment

Snow At Lower Elevations Of The Santa Catalina Mountains (February 26, 2023) — Images by kenne

We have had snow at higher elevations (Mt. Lemmon) for weeks till this morning, with clouds blocking and view of the mountains.
Slowly the clouds began to open, showing the temperatures had remained low enough for snow to accumulate. Our patio rain gauge
recorded 1/4″ of rain here in the foothills.

What’s this dragonfly doing?

Looks like another insect has been caught in a web,
which has got his attention.

I’m not that much of an insect expert.

A Jabberwocky Moon — Abstract Art by kenne 

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!

      The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!

Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun

      The frumious Bandersnatch!”

 

He took his vorpal sword in hand;

      Long time the manxome foe he sought—

So rested he by the Tumtum tree

      And stood awhile in thought.

— from Jabberwocky by Lewis Carroll
