I have climbed the hill behind our camp a few times in the evening hoping for a sunset with this saguaro – finally was rewarded with a great sky!

Here is a better look at this beautiful bird as it sits just outside our rv on a Ocotillo.  I was shooting almost straight into the sun, so I made sure I exposed for the bird even though it would mean blowing out the background.

Bird Feeders

Most of the time we have a lot of birds at our feeders, but sometimes we just have one.  🙂  We have a pair of kestrels hanging around the property, and on occasion they will swoop by the feeders looking for a possible meal.  Actually saw one fight with a loggerhead shrike!  Both eventually flew away.

Well as most people guessed, yesterday’s photo was of a couple baby javelina.  They were so cute and tiny!  This image with the mom puts their size in perspective.  They didn’t stay very far from the mom, and were constantly trying to nurse!

These guys showed up on our property a few minutes ago – any guesses as to what they are?  I’ll share the answer in the morning post.
