BTA is short for Boyce Thompson Arboretum; a wonderful place for photography just an hour and fifteen minutes away from home. Like many Arboretums, it has gardens representing many parts of the world so there are lots of interesting plants to photograph (my favorite area is the Australian Outback) but most people go for the birds and butterflies.

I posted the wrong photo yesterday 🙂 I told you it was a long day! So here’s the photo that goes with yesterday’s text referencing a table set up for my greeting cards and flora guide. Note the lady in blue with a straw hat on the left. She kept up with the rest of the group while pushing a walker the whole way! I was very impressed and inspired especially since one area of the hike is quite a climb. She never slowed down.
Long day! I was asked to assist Cass Blodgett on a Wildflower hike at Boyce Thompson Arboretum today. This area is very different from the McDowells and very interesting! In the foreground you can see my greeting cards and flora guide. Thanks Lynnea and Paul for letting me set up the table!
This female Collared Lizard typically hangs out in the same spot on the upper trail at Boyce Thompson Arboretum so you’re likely to get a shot of her if you take that great hike. She was in deep shade so I took a few shots and used Photomatix and some Topaz filters to bring out detail. Captured with Canon 7D and Canon 300mm lens. ISO 400, f/5.7 @ 1/320th sec.
