Grackle

Grackle

This is a female Great-Tailed Grackle found in Arizona. Females are brown whereas the males are black. I love they way the leaves softly and gently frame the bird. She is enjoying the shade. 

According to the Audubon Field Guide, Great-Tailed Grackles are omnivores and their diet is varied including “many insects, also spiders, millipedes, snails, crayfish, tadpoles, small fish, lizards, eggs and nestlings of other birds, and sometimes adult birds. Also eats a wide variety of seeds, waste grain, berries, fruit, and nuts.”

In the Distance

In the Distance

This is a photograph where it leads your eye along the concrete wall, across the waters to the bridge in the distance. This image was taking at sunset in Tempeh, Arizona, USA. 

I have called it “In the Distance” as it leads your attention into the distance.

Thorns

Thorns

This was part of the same hike through the deserts around Mesa, Arizona. I have made the photograph into a black and white one because I like the way the thorns are more so emphasized. I also like the way the leaves of the cacti look like paddles. I believe these are called Prickly Pear Cacti.

Spikes

Spikes

I took this photograph while hiking in and around Mesa, Arizona. The cactus is full of spikes and prickly thorns. Although it is full of spikes, there is beauty in this nature too.

According to Wikipedia, “In plant morphology, thorns, spines, and prickles, and in general spinose structures, are hard, rigid extensions or modifications of leaves, roots, stems or buds with sharp, stiff ends, and generally serve the same function: physically deterring animals from eating the plant material.”

Golden Eyes

I was able to get close to this tiger through the benefit of a glass partition. He was just relaxing and enjoying life. He is absolutely majestic and gorgeous. He has such golden eyes so that is what I have called this photograph.

Double Big Horn Sheep

I really like the way the two Big Horn Sheep are pretty much camouflaged with the brown background. They are stoic even as they sit eloquently on the ground. This was taken at Bearizona Wildlife Park near Flagstaff Arizona where you drive through the Ponderosa Forest.

This is an iguana on a boulder getting up to sun himself. He is perched every so precariously but he has the claws to be able to climb up and balance himself.
