Found in the desert, too….

This post is a carry-over from the earlier one, Found in the desert…a little bit of a photo album from a relatively recent trip to Tucson, Arizona, USA.  Again, the backdrop for the first image is the Santa Catalina Mountains…it used to be considered a geographic boundary of  the greater Tucson area, but housing developments and commercial interests have moved or spread to this side over the years.

The photo contains representations of the well-known Saguaro cactus, Prickly Pear cactus, some Cholla, and even a bit of what I believe is  a small Yucca in the bottom right corner…as well as what might be Greasewood bushes/shrubs.

Twin (?) Saguaro cacti that have seen better times…I believe they are approaching their end….

A nice patch of Prickly Pear cactus….

While the below photo isn’t nearly as impressive as the array of  hummingbird images you’ll find when visiting Emilio at  Disperser Tracks,   I thought it was still pretty cool….  You can click on the highlighted words in the previous sentence to see his two posts on the Hummers of Summer 2012.  Wonderful photos…..

A little bit of Cholla cactus skeleton in the below shot….

Fruit and not-so-friendly spines from a Golden Barrel cactus….

And lastly, a clutch of Saguaro cacti with some Prickly Pear in the foreground….

Thank you for visiting…I hope you’ve enjoyed the glimpse into the desert life of Tucson, Arizona.
