Anza Borrego Wildflowers

Recent Photographs of wildflowers and desert scenics at Anza Borrego State Park in Calif. Feb 25. This should be one of the best wildflower displays in years with substantial rains starting in Oct and continuing in Nov, Dec, Jan, and Feb. The peak has not been reached and could be as soon as 2 weeks depending on temperatures and more rainfall. I used a wide angle 17-40 lens on most and a 100-400 lens for the hummingbirds and a few others.

Owls and Snow Scenics

Owls photographed recently and in the past in Washington state on the coast for the Snowy and E Wash for the N Saw-whet plus some snow scenics during the recent big blizzard.

My photograph of a Great Gray Owl was chosen as one of the top 250 of the North American Nature Photography Association Showcase for 2019 (on the NANPA website and published in NANPA Expressions Journal.)
