David Crook and I went to Butterfly Wonderland again in October, and here are a few of my photos. Enjoy!
About a week ago, my brother, David Crook, asked if I wanted to join him in a trip to Hassayampa Nature Preserve. Of course! Who cared if the temperatures were hovering around 100 degrees? There were lots of trees, and I’d take bottled water. We had a wonderful time. We’ve been there many times, and the subjects are always different. This time, near the end of our hike around the little lake, I spotted some crawdads in a creek area. Crawdads? “Nah,” said David, but once I showed them to him, he recanted and began taking pictures. They are somewhat camera shy and it wasn’t easy to get photos of them. But the fun! Look! There! And there! We learned later that they had imported these beautiful critters recently.
I’d like to share some of my photos, including the bark of a huge tree with various textures. Exciting. Hope you enjoy.
You can change the format of the photos from SlideShow to Thumbnails, or just click on any picture to get an quick enlargement.
Brother David Crook and I visited the magical Butterfly Wonderland in Scottsdale late in May this year. We’ve been there many times and always discover delightful changes/additions. This time I noticed new tropical flora, and couldn’t help but photograph some of it. I also had some fun editing the pictures and occasionally trying out new filters . . . just for fun.
Yesterday my brother, David Crook, and I went to Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix. We both have memberships. It is a magical place. Sounds strange, since most people don’t think of a desert area as magical, but trust me, it’s possible. Shapes, colors, textures, stages of life, cute little critters, chirping birds, shade tree areas . . . there’s so much. And on this day, Palo Verde blossoms blanketed much of the garden. Enjoy!
