I had too many options to choose from for today’s picture after an evening walk at Mcdowell Sonoran conservancy. The sunset was wonderful, the cactii are blooming and the air is cool.  But I chose this…for can on be more proud of a rock?

*I will post others to Flickr in days to come.

January 30, 2010This may not have been my BEST shot taken during my morning hike at the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy but I did feel it was the most comical.  It is a simple, lowly cactus of some species but THIS one, I am sure, was created by Jim Henson. It was literally watching me either with the attempt of being the little tiny monster with big dreams of protecting the desert or the forgotten little plant-animal that needs someone to love him like that tale of the frog and the princess.

My wife says it reminds her of an animal with human qualities …. and it isn’t even an animal.
