|The brilliant dunes of White Sands, framed by|
The San Andres Mountains.
It’s March and too early for wildflowers but that’s my only regret about being in the dunes today. Even without flowers, photo opportunities present themselves everywhere I look.
|The jets are gone and quiet returns to the skies above|
|Mrs. Michigan and her Morkies.|
|These hikers enjoy a quiet morning on the dunes.|
|Vegetation along the nature trail provides hiding places for|
meadow voles, lizards, hares and ground-dwelling birds—
all are on the menu of the kit fox.
|You really don't want to be this close to a Tarantula Hawk.|
I hope this one was already dead.
