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.

Bighorn Sheep

From the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, January 2, 2013.  Testing Sony Too with lots of zoom, abundant sunshine, not many shadows, and a mini tripod on a adobe wall with a great flat surface.  Great conditions.  Very little post editing was done.  Enjoy.

Black-Tailed Prairie Dog

Faithful readers may remember that I am bonkers over prairie dogs.  These cuties were residents of the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum.

Stretched out, watching something - -

Stand off at the OK Corral, errr, the prairie dog burrow.  You can almost hear them, mine, no mine, no - -

This fellow (gal) came right up to the wall and almost looked as if he were chatting and begging from the little boy nearby.

Lunch time - -

*Now before ya all start lecturing me, I am well aware that these "rodents" are not considered man's best friends out here in the west.  I get it.

My Orchid, MORE Buds

More blooms coming?  I think so.  Stay tuned.

It is a tad difficult to get a really good photo.

Puma, Mountain Lion

Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum:

From the glassed in viewing area, from behind:

Around from the front of the display, I don't quite remember, but, I am pretty sure I zoomed a bit to shoot this:

Don't know about you, but, I surely don't want to see this face on a hike in the desert:

Zooming a bit more, yawn, teeth nice and clean, all the better - - never mind:

Let's see how well Sony Too zooms, noting, I have not moved one inch during all these photos:

Almost sweet and peaceful, but, then, I remind you, look up the page once again:

*Almost no editing corrections were done to these photos, no sharpening, a few photos had some auto correct done, which frankly did not make a lot of difference.

Road Runner

Look at who we caught trying to hide:

Certainly a master of disguise.
