Thanks to Nancy’s alertness we saw this striped whipsnake on Tuesday near Ash Canyon. It’s very thin and about 24 inches long. And very fast. After it posed for a few minutes, it took off. Quite a treat to see. … Continue reading
After a weekend of gentle rain, the rocks and plants looked so bright with their layers of dust washed away. And on our hike we were greeted by this guy – the first tarantula I’ve seen this year. Time for … Continue reading
This is a rather feeble barbed wire fence. You can see one of the posts (or spreaders) is broken off near the ground, but the wire is still taut, so something holds it up. But for me, the real fence … Continue reading
A cemetery fence near Shoshone, California. I’ll link it to Friday Fences so you can see many more fences!
Rainbows in the morning are unusual here – most of the storms come in the afternoon. We were greeted by this sunrise rainbow over Mud Springs Mountain. I like the frames, but I have a lot to learn. This is … Continue reading

Another shot from the trip to Globe, Arizona, an old mining town. I’m taking Kim Klassen’s Beyond Layers class where I learn to use more of PhotoShop Elements. So this started as last week’s lesson and I just kept going. … Continue reading
Oh, my new favorite subjects are the displays in a Las Cruces market (Pro’s Ranch by name). I just grabbed a few shots on my phone this week, but I will return!
A simple fence and older windmill south of Tucumcari, New Mexico. And I’ll link to Friday Fences so you can see more fence photos.
We got rain! A real gully washer that left plants washed, seeds encouraged, and our attitudes improved. Later when hiking, I saw the ever-efficient ocotillo which had leafed out because of the rain. But the new leaves on the … Continue reading
The lonely Gambel’s Quail has braved the high lamp post to advertise his availability for a mate with his sad call. I hope it works for him.
