See that bird sitting on the ledge? It sure does look like one to me! Maybe even an eagle! Just to make sure, I dig the telephoto lens out of my backpack, stick it on my camera and shoot away.

But it turned out to be a cholla cactus.

This is a fishhook cactus. I wouldn't want to be caught with one of those things!
And a few saguaro cacti.
They make the Sonoran desert such a pretty place.


  1. Love the angle and sharpness of that last picture!

  2. That last shot is amazing! Too bad that wasn't an eagle!

  3. very cool. love the angle of the last shot
