I decided to end the month of September with one of my favorite photographic subjects....the birds. I do enjoy watching them and learning their different characteristics. Above is a cactus wren who visited me while I sat a table at the Desert Botanical Garden.
This is a gila woodpecker who appears to be balanced atop the fruit of a prickly pear cactus. I don't know who that is peeking into the frame down in the lower right corner. How did he sneak into the shot?
This cute little goldfinch had a firm grip on the fencing around some plants. Goldfinches are pretty little birds.
This last one is a white-winged dove sitting on top of a very thorny cactus. Don't you love their pretty blue eye-shadow?
