|The desert is a place filled with wildlife and nature.|
This tree is clinging on for dear life, growing slightly sideways,
But often proved to be an excellent place for a hawk to rest.
|The ground squirrels make me smile, they are adorable and |
have such large brown eyes, and they're always in a hurry.
|The hawk, he often rests in the shade of the tree and isn't shy,|
he didn't move a muscle when we took his picture.
|A beautiful wingspan|
|A Chuckwalla lizard who always seemed to be bopping up and |
down as though doing push ups.
|At dusk and dawn we often saw the rabbits happily leaping|
about and frolicking in the dry wash/arroyo.
|Another little ground squirrel|
|A young coyote pup, we took the pic over the gate in the grounds |
of the museum, the museum was closed and I'm sure he felt safe
hanging out there.
|Desert rain in the distance|
|Windy at sunset|
|The usually dry wash/arroyo after a storm|
|This large deer just simply watched us for a minute and then in |
the blink of an eye was gone into the desert
|The second of the two coyote pups, he looks happy doesn't he?|
|A Curious Javelina. We weren't as close as it might appear.|
|These stocky Javelina are much more agile than you might think.|
They climb up and down the sloping walls of the wash/arroyo with ease
|The hawk in a pensive mood, or looking for dinner?|
|More Javelina. Often large groups would come through together.|
