Ephemeral

Delicate

Desert flowers enjoying the morning dew as we start on a hike in the canyon lands of the Colorado Plateau. These flowers seem to last only a day at the most. Knowing this we enjoy their beauty all the more. A life lesson taught flowers.

Bullocks

The Oriole that is. Bight orange and beautiful the Bullocks Oriole. Who can resist that goatee and the Zoroesque mask. We typically see hundreds of Oriole nest in the winter and early spring but only catch a rare glimpse of the maker. This year we were lucky and got several nice opportunities.
