A Coatimundi near Tucson, Arizona.

Doing a little scouting today at the Colossal Caverns, and was greeted by a pack of Coatimundis! This is one of many places we will be visiting on my Arizona Photo Tour in April in which I surprisingly still have two spots left! I think it is going to be a really fun trip, here is more information on my Arizona Photo Workshop. Hopefully the Coati will still be around!

Today at the Desert Photo Retreat! The wildflowers are really beginning to look good, there are big numbers of little guys, a macro photographer paradise right now. And to think, we may receive more rain on Friday, and most certainly well next week.

We have a few spots left for our Arizona Photo Tour!   This is an awesome all inclusive photo tour based at the famous White Stallion Ranch.  There we will be able to photograph the wranglers and all types of Western activity, along with a rodeo from inside the ring!  Plus, with all the rain we have received, should be seeing some amazing wildflower for landscape opportunities along with Arizona’s famous sunsets.  Plus, we will spend some time photographing the birds and wildlife at the Desert Photo Retreat – this is a perfect time for migrating birds.  We will also visit the world famous  Sonoran Desert Museum, and even the Colossal Cavern!  Plus more!  We will cover a lot of what Arizona has to offer!

This is all inclusive, even transportation.  You get your self to Tucson, we will take care of the rest.    Check out the above link for details.

I have spent the last two days traveling up to Picacho Peak State Park where the wildflowers, especially the poppies are looking great!  I believe this is the beginning of a great desert wildflower season!  These photos were from today (Tuesday).

Having fun with a Spotted Towhee on this rainy Sunday. This is a new species for us this winter – now I just need to get it up to a better perch.
