Wilson's Phalarope

Here is a Wilson's Phalarope in breeding plumage. The photo was taken at Lake Cochise in Southeast Arizona. It's fun to watch these little sandpipers because they are constantly "spinning" around like a top stirring up insects from the bottom of the pond or lake.

Wildflowers and Grasses

As I've mentioned before, sometimes when searching for particular animals or birds and not having much luck, I look for other photo opportunities. Such was the case on Mount Lemmon one day when I couldn't pass up this beautiful photo of grasses and wildflowers:

Wild Turkey

Here's a "'5" Star Wild Turkey photo. Two males showing off, not just for the females, but for an audience as well. This photo was taken in Madera Canyon, probably the most reliable place in Southern Arizona for finding Wild Turkeys:
