Gallery 1-2 - Scenes in the Southwest

     In many of these scenes the animals and trees call out to us in a way that seems as timeless as the terrain they inhabit.  Others speak of the rich and mixed cultural heritage of the Southwest--Native, Hispanic and American.  In every case, the scenes are real, very real, and it is the art of digitography that has brought them alive.  Be sure and check our other galleries; they overlap a little.

    If you are from the Tucson area or just love this special place, we have a special page for you--Old Tucson Only.

    For your convenience, we've placed only a few images on each page of this gallery.  When you are ready, go to pages 13 or  Old Tucson Only in this gallery, or use the tags at the top to view other galleries on our site and place your order.

 

Frequent Flier

Frequent Flier

Frequent Flier© describes this delicate little humming bird as it carefully approaches a luscious ocotillo blossom.  Somehow, despite all the energy spent by keeping those wings buzzing, this guy always finds enough nectar both to keep himself flying, and to nurture his new family a little distance away from here.

 

Just Born

    Just Born

Just Born©.  It is difficult to believe that this little ball of fluff will grow into an enormous great horned owl.  Just now, she is a few weeks old and she is trying to pretend that she is fierce and not at all worried as you approach her.  The only thing moving in the nest is her head.  As you walk, somehow her head is always facing you.

 

Long Way Down

Long Way Down

Long Way Down©.  Generally our many small creatures find clever ways to hide themselves, particularly in the daytime.  This little guy seems caught by surprise.  Perhaps he is young and has not gotten the message yet.  Hide!  But first, I  must get down.   Hmm.  How do I do that?

Lonely Bull

The Lonely Bull

   The Lonely Bull©.  The herd went back to the barn.  Only the master of the pasture remained to guard the desert from interlopers.  Heís friendly, really.  But there is little question who is in charge here.

 

Looking Cute

Looking Cute

Looking Cute©.  This little oriole poses next to spring brittle brush flowers.  She knows she is lovely and she waits just long enough for us to enjoy her coloring.  Then, with barely a sound, she hops to the flowers and continues her search for the tiny bugs that only she can see.

 

Morning Snack

   Morning Snack©.  Road runners have a busy day.  If they arenít in a movie role, they have to fetch their own food.  This little guy has managed to find himself a small lizard that just wasnít fast enough this morning. The road runnerís crest is still up, indicating how pleased he is at his early morning catch.  

 

Must Be Love

Must Be Love

Must Be Love©.  What do two bobcats do when they arenít out hunting up a little lunch.  They could wander around, but why bother? The day is warm and there is no time like now to just relax and enjoy each otherís company.  After allóthey are cats. 

 

On Patrol

 On Patrol© finds two white-nosed burros wandering in the eastern segment of Saguaro National Park.  They look as though they are doing fine, scavenging the desert floor searching for a little grass, a little pool of water, and maybe a little petting by some friendly passer-by.
