An Ocatillo Patch. March 22, 2009

Posted by littlebangtheory in Art and Nature.

Really, a beautiful place to pass a morning, with flowering ocatillo plants and cool clouds:


And then, a rustling in a bush.  I stopped and looked, stood still for a while, and finally saw what had stirred:


Do you see it?  …No?   Look closer…

Why, it’s Jack!  He’s patiently waiting for me to go away.  So patiently, in fact, that I was able to walk around him at a range of about fifteen feet and do several lens changes to get these photos.  And I never saw him move after the initial twitch which had alerted me to his presence.

He was a beauty, though…

I’ve been catching up with all your latest photos and what can I say??? They are stunningly beautiful as always and as always, they took my breath away. You are so very talented and I’m so glad you share the results of your talent and your camera with those of us out here in lala land.

Pagan S, yes, I know… didn’t you used to fight with your brother over the best bits? 😆

Sylvia, you’re setting the bar pretty high there, Gurrrl – but thank you for your appreciative words, which always drive me onward in pursuit of deserving such accolades.

Nice to see what your shots look like in bigger size than the thumbs on the compooter. I’m still processing and will put new choices on the website soon. Some will go on the blawg, too.

BTW, ocotillos are actually trees. They don’t look anything like sugar maples, eh?

there is nothing like your pics.. esp the animal ones to calm me down

Frau B, ocotillos are trees, and Joshua trees are technically lilies. Go figure. 🙂

Dcap, good to hear from you, and thanks for the kind words. You’re catching me at a really non-bloggy moment in time, though I hope to be doing more soon. Stay tuned! 😉
