Arizona Sonora Desert Museum

Had a really cool day today! Got the chance to visit the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum today with some friends! That place is teeming with plants and animal wildlife! Everything was lovely. After a cool morning, we had a sunny 80 degree day. The place is full of palo verde, palmetto and mesquite trees (just to name a few) and every kind of cactus imaginable (saguaro, la cholla, cereus, barrel)!

I got there just in time for the 10:30 AM raptor free flight which featured a raven, a barn owl and a ferrous hawk today. Then I took some great shots of hummingbirds, bighorn sheep, javalinas, black bear, deer, coyotes, squirrels, prarie dogs, killdeer, doves, quail, ocelot, fox, margay, coati mundi and prarie dogs. It was truly a blessed day. I couldn't have asked for a better time with friends!
