It was quite hot out there despite our very early start, and we're headed for a high of 100F. What can you do?--we're living in the desert.
We saw a couple of hardy outdoor enthusiasts during our explorations, though there weren't as many as usual. You need to get a really early start if you hope to beat the heat at this time of year. It will only get worse when the monsoon season begins in earnest; then we'll have higher humidity coupled with extreme temperatures.
|Time for a break|
|Couldn't get a clear shot of this Cabbage White Butterfly|
|I've looked at breaks from both sides now|
|Blooming all over the desert|
|Wooly Paperflower and Velvety Nerisyrenia|
|Nipple Beehive Cactus (Coryphantha Macromeris) blooming again|
|This and the next: Blackfoot Daisies|
|Can't get a positive ID on this tiny lizard (2" overall)|
|This and the rest: juvenile New Mexico Twin-Spotted Spiny Lizard|
Those are great photos of the lizard climbing over our fence.
