I went on an amazing 8 mile hike in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve this morning (Sunday) and saw lots of Wildflowers including several fields of Poppies! This collage shows most of what we saw but not all. Unfortunately for the flowers, there doesn’t seem to be any rain in sight so this might be all the wildflowers we get 🙁

creature this morning. This time a (barely visible) Crab Spider on a Datura bloom. I captured him hand held with a Canon 24-105mm lens at 105mm. To achieve closer focus, I attached a 500D close-up lens. It doesn’t equate to a true macro lens but works well as an alternative to switching lenses.
I captured this White butterfly on the Shultz Tank trail. A gorgeous but extremely difficult butterfly to photograph. They won’t sit still! Thanks to Tom H for the identity. It’s a Pine White. That’s what I thought but the orange edging confused me. I found out today that the female has orange. Thanks to my Cazba(.org) friends!
