Gila Monster

Gila Monster.

Gila Monster.

Saw a small gila monster while I was out running this a.m.  This is encouraging – last year after seeing the first one, I spotted 5 more that week, but then haven’t seen one since until today.  That shouldn’t be a surprise since these guys spend some 90% of their life underground.  This is a photo from last spring.

Last night’s sunset.  Since they sky didn’t do anything, I left it out.

This was at f/11, 1/30th of a second and ISO 2500 with a Canon 5D IV and 24-105 lens at 65.  Even though I was using a tripod, I needed the high ISO to help freeze the wildflowers from the movement thanks to some wind.

Since a couple of people opted for a private workshop, we now have one spot left on my desert workshop:  http://desert-photo-retreat.com/sonoran-desert-photography-workshop/

Woke up to some nice rain and this beautiful rainbow this morning!  The photo blind sits out of sight at the bottom of this rainbow – maybe there will be some gold to find there today!
