This last week, we experienced the hottest temperatures since living here and, in fact, some areas set new records! Before you feel sorry for us, though, know that although we would prefer it not get this hot, we all know how to deal with the heat.

The Elf Owl is the smallest owl in the Sonoran Desert. Notice his broken and magled wing. Sadly, he will never fly again but he has a good home with Liberty Wildlife Rescue. Think about donating to a wildlife rescue in your area. They need help! http://www.libertywildlife.org/

This is an old image I updated by adding textures. The butterfly was photographed at the Butterfly Pavilion at the Desert Botanical Garden. The garden no longer houses as many varieties as in past years. They now mostly have Monarchs. Still fun to see but not as exciting.
I spotted these sitting atop a Palo Verde tree near my front door! They stayed just long enough for me to run in and grab a camera. My exposure wasn’t the best but with added textures and processing, I really like how it turned out. Either way, a great memory 🙂
This female Gilded Flicker was so engrossed in eating she didn’t mind me moving in for a closer look. I noticed she had a crooked beak but it didn’t seem to hinder her eating.

I enjoy photographing dried plants almost as much as live ones especially when they have great seed heads. I thought this image would look good with added textures and was happy to find one that looked a little like grasses. (check out more of my photos on my G+ page.
