Hah! I'm surprised that nobody else commented about your camera sitting on a picture of John and Yoko.

That's a great looking saguaro. Love all the gila woodpecker holes! I miss Az so much (especially this time of year).

My favorite saguaro pic, from Saguaro National Monument on the east side of Tucson:

Costa Rica is a friendly country that's made big commitment to conservation and habitat preservation since we were here about 35 years ago. In the Monteverde/St Elena area alone there are about 100 professional guides, almost all university trained and certified. These communities are very busy compared to when we were last here. Eco tourism seems to be a good investment for them. We do have to consider the eco cost of air travel as well, but if the tourist dollars weren't coming in there wouldn't be as much habitat protection.

Part of yesterday's golden hour spent by an old pasture populated with Brahmin/Zebu type cattle and waiting for the birds to come a bit closer, and land on a bush or a twig rather than a wire.

According to the field guide, this Red-breasted Blackbird shouldn't even be in this part of Costa Rica.

Revisited my Thistle and Lily and played with a sunflower: both shot with the Pixel and edited with Snapseed in the camera.

One of my favorite photos from the Southern AZ desert.

This is not at all processed. This photo was taken with my camera phone. I'm using a small UV LED flashlight that I carry when hiking at night just to find scorpions. They really do pop like this. It's fun to go hiking at night with people not from the area. At some point, we all stop, and I tell them there are probably at least a dozen scorpions within 20 feet of us. They usually get freaked out when I say it, and start shining their flashlights around looking for them. They can't find them, of course, with normal lights. Then I pull out my UV light:

If you're asking about the ones in my photo, the 'blue' is the visible part of the UV flashlight. I think the rocks that look red are catching the light from another (regular light) source. A lot of the rocks in AZ are quite red due to the high iron content.
