Tarantula Hawk (Pepsis wasp) on Milkweed (Asclepias albicans), Middle Fork Palm Wash, Anza Borrego Desert State Park, California. May 2017.

From Wikipedia: "...the wasp's sting is rated near the top of the 'Schmidt sting pain index'..." and "Adult tarantula hawks are nectarivorous. The consumption of fermented fruit sometimes intoxicates them to the point that flight becomes difficult." -- what a combination! :-D

One of 11 photos from Sunday's hike with my friend T. M. Schultze. We explored the various Palm Wash canyons in the old Calcite Mine area - the western part of Middle Fork Palm Wash contains THE best looking slot canyon in Anza Borrego Desert State Park if you ask me. :-) It was quite windy and cool temperatures for the desert in May - awesome! More photos in my latest blog post, on my website (link in profile).

Grebes at Lake Hodges (8 photos)

The grebes at Lake Hodges are my favorite birds. There are both Western Grebes (Aechmophorus occidentalis) and Clark’s Grebes (Aechmophorus clarkii) at the lake. These two are relatively easy to keep apart – the feathers around the eyes of Western Grebes…

Land and nature need a voice. Please visit savethecarrizo.org and add yours.

27 national monuments are "under review" - Carrizo Plain is one of them, and this place is especially dear to my heart.

My photo shows the eroded hills at the foot of the Temblor Range. They surely look like typical badlands – except that in spring, they’re covered with millions of wildflowers. This photo is dominated by the yellow of Hillside Daisies, with some Owl’s Clover in the foreground.
