Quill wrote:Awesome pics, Brenda. Thanks for posting! And for the cool captions. I love photos with captions. I especially like the wildlife ones. The bobcat is amazing. And the reclining bunny. I visited a friend down in Tucson. She lived in a sort of community on the outskirts and there the pigs (javelina) hung out like they owned the place. Just laying around under the trees, wouldn't run if you approached them. Almost didn't feel safe. And the pack rats would ruin your car's wiring if you weren't on top of that, too. Wild country that Tucson.
Off course we get cats up here in the Prescott area, too. Several mountain lions photographed in yards this year and a bobcat killed. The occasional bear, as well. The javelina run amok here, too, although they don't hang out unless one feeds them. And there's the coyotes.
Anyway, loved your travel shots, too. Cool that you get to travel.
Thank you so much, Quill! My husband and I just cleaned a packrat nest out of my pool heater - the stupid thing broke the heater by building its nest right on top of the heating coil. It was a nightmare. I really enjoy living out here (10 miles south of I-10, just east of Tucson proper) because we do have all the wildlife. I don't get to travel much, but I've really enjoyed the trips I have been able to take. I'm more than happy to share my photos with anyone who will look at them. :)

Arizona is a really beautiful place and it has an awesome atmosphere (At least if I see it right most of your pictures are presenting Arizona.). Your pictures are presenting that incredible place perfectly.
You made me tear up a little bit, Guardian. That's the nicest thing anyone's ever said about my photos. I try to do justice to God's amazing handiwork and feel blessed that someone feels that I succeeded. And yes, most of the photos are in southern Arizona - in fact, most are from my backyard. (One of the last ones, with the green desert and mountains just visible to the left, is the view that I have from my backdoor.) I'm blessed to live in such a beautiful place. If they're taken somewhere else it should be noted in the captions.
