|Very ripe Barrel Cactus fruit|
We saw a few birds today, including one I tried to photograph, but who took off right before I depressed the shutter button. We spotted no land-based critters, and I was thankful for the absence of jackrabbits to arouse the Heelers.
It was very quiet out there while we explored, very few vehicles transiting Tellbrook Road on Sunday morning.
