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.

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

 

Heads Up

Heads Up

Heads Up.  Oh dear!  This deer seems to have found herself in a narrow area in front of a rocky cliff.  Perhaps she came by to sniff the wonderful flowers growing on the ledge in front of her.  If she is hungry enough…maybe she’ll eat the flowers as another way of appreciating them.

 

Just Arrived

Just Arrived

Just Arrived.  One of the Sonoran Desert yuccas produces an annual crop of delicate rose-colored flowers.  And who better to appreciate the marvel of those tiny flowers than a tiny hummingbird who is just coming in for a sip of nectar.

 

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.  He’s 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.

Mom and Kids

Mom and Kids

Mom and Kids.  On a warm afternoon, it is easy to just doze off.  Mom spent most of the morning hunting up breakfast, and has already fallen asleep.  But one of her two great horned owl chicks can’t quite sleep.  Maybe the chick is wondering if there is something out here looking back.

 

Morning Snack

   Morning Snack©.  Road runners have a busy day.  If they aren’t in a movie role, they have to fetch their own food.  This little guy has managed to find himself a small lizard that just wasn’t fast enough this morning. The road runner’s 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 aren’t 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 other’s company.  After all—they are cats.
