Summer in the desert



This is a nolina in full bloom, taken at Joshua Tree National Park when my parents were visiting two weeks ago.

Just a quick post. I had some desert wildlife photos to share with you. Hope you enjoy them, and your weekend. It has been hot here (106 right now at 6 pm.) Send rain!

Interesting bird - what kind is it? The back-light on the bunny's ears are amazing.

Bindu, it is a Gambel's Quail. One of my favorite birds here in the desert. I love the feather top!
