Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

Rio Grande Cottonwood, White Sands National Monument

Cottonwood buried in a dune of gypsum "sand".

There is no way to really tell how tall this cottonwood is, but, as long as it can keep some leaves/foliage above the sand dune the tree can survive.

Beautiful and fragile looking. It's amazing how nature survives in even the most harsh of elements. Cheers! Jennifer
