Looking forward to spring and this photo is a throw back to last spring. January always seems so much longer than 31 days. This is an entrance to a mountain hiking trail in the Cibola National Forest. When it’s really dry and there is a fire danger many if not all of these trail get closed.
That plant with the white bloom of flowers on top is a Yucca which New Mexico adopted as it’s state flower in 1927.
I had a really had time trying to decide which photo was my favorite of 2015. This hummingbird shot won out by a very slight margin and the reason I chose it it because hummingbirds are so hard to capture. They flit around so fast.
A hummingbird stopping for lunch at a road side eatery. I love hummingbirds and miss them when they fly off for winter.
Really, could they be any cuter? Spotted at Tingley Beach; They sat there very patiently as their people fished. There is no way that my dogs would have ever been that well behaved.
I love when they sit long enough for me to take a photo.
I thought that this particular display of plants at Whole Foods was very “Spring”.
