Chuparosa or Hummingbird-Bush with a Saguaro Cactus, in McDowell Mountain Regional Park, near Phoenix, Arizona.
We had an exciting experience today – saw a Desert Tortoise while mountain biking! The Desert Tortoise spends 95% of its life in a burrow, so it is really exciting to see one. I rode back to my truck and grabbed my camera, but much to my surprise, we were unable to find it again! How can a turtle disappear so fast – I guess that is how it beat the hare. 🙂 So unfortunately, you get a picture of wildflowers today instead of a tortoise – maybe we will find him tomorrow.
