A band of Salt River wild horses warily watch a lone horseback rider pass by. . . You never know what reaction a band will have to a domestic horse—this band remained calm but on high alert; I’ve seen other bands bolt and run. (I do love how this band is surrounded by green—the desert is incredibly lush this year.)

A steady stream of Javelinas along the game trail behind the property ..... several young ones and if you wait for it, Mom and baby catch a glimpse of me filming and freeze in their tracks then head away from the herd . If you watch towards the end unfortunately one of the larger females has a broken leg/foot but she seems to manage. (Possibly hit by a car) I have seen her on her own in the yard so I’m sure it’s not easy for her to keep up but this herd comes nightly so I’ll be checking in on her to see her progress. #azwhitemountains #collardpeccary #gametrail #az_wildlife #apachesitgreavesnationalforest #azwildlife #javelinas #sunset #snow #rootingforseeds #grubbing 🐗⛰❄️

Her ears have some stories to tell! 😃🐰Jackrabbits’ extremely large ears, about a third of their body length, are usually thought to help them hear but these long appendages also help regulate their body temperature. The ears are rich with blood vessels and in summer heat, these blood vessels expand. Spread ears and summer breezes cool the blood. During winter, these ears are held against the body and their blood vessels constrict so they lose less heat to the cold air. #jackrabbit #weroamarizona #hikearizona #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #instagramaz #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #photooftheday #conquerarizona   #fox10phoenix #Beon12   #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #natgeopix #westbysouthwest #tucsonnewsnow

My first pet rattlesnake living in AZ. This was taken in September 2000 a few months after I moved here. I used to set him on the sink while cleaning his cage. In retrospect maybe not the brightest way to contain him but fortunately all ended well. I kept a nice collection for about 10 years and finally decided I preferred them wild rather than in my cages.

the past couple weeks have been full to the brim in the best ways. the kind of weeks that remind me of one of my favorite quotes from the office, by a wise man named andrew baines bernard : “i wish there was a way to know you’re in the good ol’ days before you’ve actually left them.” psst. i know i’m in mine. 🙊🤗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📷 : @anotheraaronjohnson

“Sovereignty” (2018) This male Pronghorn Antelope seemed to be surveying his kingdom as he reigns supreme over the herd. This vast area is perfect for the pronghorn as it affords everything they need -food, water and clear visibility to identify potential threats. . . Pronghorn Antelope Portfolio - Image: 12 of 15 . .

I think lots of us humans grew up looking for images in the clouds at some point

I think lots of us humans grew up looking for images in the clouds at some point. Well that imagination stuck with me and I still find imaginary treasures here and there in more than cloudscapes. I was instantly drawn to this cute little imaginary mouse sitting inside a Saguaro cactus as soon as I saw it. The little treasures in life are so sweet and fun to stumble upon. All we need to do is look around to find hidden treasures placed everywhere by our Creator. The more often we see the things around us - even the beautiful and wonderful things - the more they become visible to us. Why do we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds - even those we love. Is it because we see things so often, we see them less and less for what they truly are - treasures. Take time to stop and really look around you. There are so many hidden treasures in your life. Enjoy them. 🙌🏼

Good morning! 🦅🐇During hunting, the Coopers Hawk approaches its prey stealthily, moving quietly through dense cover until it is close enough to overcome its target with a burst of speed. The secretive traits that allow the Coopers Hawk to surprise its prey also make it difficult to observe by humans.They have good depth perception for hunting and catching prey while flying at high speeds. This raptor has powerful feet with needle sharp talons for catching prey. The hooked bill is well adapted to tearing the flesh of its favorite prey such as chipmunks, squirrels and birds. #coopershawk #weroamarizona #hikearizona #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #instagramaz #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #photooftheday #conquerarizona   #fox10phoenix #Beon12   #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #tucsonnewsnow #westbysouthwest

It’s obvious they all went to the same stylist for their bangs, & a nice swish of the tail enhances their pose for the camera. . . Once these Salt River wild horses are sure I have my photo, they head off into the desert and its green lushness, courtesy of the recent rains.

Gestation site with quite a pile of sheds from neonates. I think I counted 18 plus a few sheds from 6-8 gravid females. So nice to visit healthy undisturbed groups of snakes!!

I know, I know...another owl silhouette sunset photo. I came across this #greathownedowl on a recent sunset hike. S/he is not the same owl that I posted yesterday. I turned on the video just in case hooting/mating would take place (slide left), but not this time. •*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*• #IG_Arizona #AZWildlife #Igersphx #az365 #swimages #See_Arizona #Visit_Arizona #IGSouthwest #weroamarizona #HikeArizona #ArizonasBest #AZ_living_ #ExploreArizona #ExploreAZ #Welcome2AZ #ItsAmazingOutThere #BeOn12 #cbs5az #abc15arizona #abc15 #fox10news #_only_raptors #owl_pages #onlyowls #ethicalowlphoto #elite_raptors #elite_owls #amayesingowls #amayesingsunsets

Credit © 🎬 @pachucos_art Good morning! Watch how this tarantula rescues the smaller tarantula from its predator! 🕷🦅🦗The female tarantula hawk wasp attacks the tarantulas and paralyzes them with their powerful sting. After paralyzing them, these predators drag up their prey to the brooding nest where they have placed an egg placed on the spider’s abdomen. Fertilization is used to determine the sex of the larvae. The unfertilized eggs only make males while the fertilized eggs make females. When the larvae of the wasp hatches then it makes a hole in the spider’s abdomen and then enters and feeds keenly. It avoids the primary organs to keep the spider alive for a longer period. After some weeks, the larvae pupate. In the end, the wasp turns out into an adult and comes out from the spider’s abdomen to run the life cycle. #tarantulahawkwasp #weroamarizona #hikearizona #arizona_hiking #arizona_landscapes #arizonahiking #azwildlife #instagramaz #capturearizona #oh_arizona #arizonahighways #canon_photos #igsouthwest #ig_southwest #tucson #igerstucson #visittucson #photooftheday #conquerarizona   #fox10phoenix #Beon12   #explorearizona_ #see_arizona #abc15 #iamazproud #divine_deserts #exploring_arizona #tucsonnewsnow #westbysouthwest

Buddies The doves and sparrows are happy to hang out together in my yard. The doves really like it when the sparrows knock food out of the feeder for them. This dove is enjoying a suet cake morsel! I make the suet cake myself since store bought is so expensive and I found a good recipe. . . . #arizonabirds #azbirds #desertbirds #desertbeauty #azwildlife #arizonawildlife #mourningdove #capturearizona #backyardbirding #birdsofarizona #birdsofinstagram #kings_birds #birds_of_ig #birdlovers #bird_brilliance #wildlifephotographybird #birds_illife #ip_birds #pocket_birds #naturephotography #wildlifephotography #ig_arizona #bestbirdshots #birder #nuts_about_birds #feather_perfection #your_best_birds #birdphotography #bird_brilliance #housesparrow

L^๏,๏^k whooo came to visit me in my very own backyard? S/he stayed all afternoon snoozing under our lemon tree. A couple weeks later I happened upon two owls a few blocks from our house hooting back and forth so I decided to try to capture the scene on video. (slide left for the footage). But for some unknown reason my camera went completely out of focus for no apparent reason and I did not get them mating! It happened though, I promise! What do you to bet Momma owl will be sitting in her saguaro cactus nest a month from now? •*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*•*• #IG_Arizona #AZWildlife #Igersphx #az365 #swimages #See_Arizona #Visit_Arizona #IGSouthwest #weroamarizona #HikeArizona #ArizonasBest #AZ_living_ #ExploreArizona #ExploreAZ #Welcome2AZ #ItsAmazingOutThere #BeOn12 #cbs5az #abc15arizona #abc15 #fox10news #_only_raptors #owl_pages #onlyowls #ethicalowlphoto #elite_raptors #elite_owls #amayesingowls
