Heading into the New Year - Wishing you all a Happy New Year filled with wonderful photo opportunities! Do you have any photographic goals? Personally, I want to concentrate more on the creative side like this Double Exposure, for instance. My primary cameras are now the Fuji X E-1 and newly acquired X E-2. Love them!!! I also use my Galaxy Smartphone for Doubles which is how this was created.  Happy Shooting all!

Sedona Fall Color - This tiny Maple tree was a little late to the fall color party! (Textures and a little Topaz Simplify added). This is one of my last images from my 2 week fall photography trip to Sedona, Arizona. You can see many more of my fall photos on my blog (link above). Look for the "Sedona" posts.

Sentinels of the Desert  - Dropping in to share some of my recent double exposures of Saguaro Cactus. (Click Image to see ALL) Most were captured with my Galaxy S4 smartphone using the Vignette app. Like film photography, you have to guess where to position your second shot. Such fun! I added textures to most and edited in Nik and Lightroom.

Desert Double Exposure - A promising colorful sunrise turns out to have no color. It was very dark so I decided to make the most of it and just play! This double exposure was captured with my newest mirrorless...the Fuji X-E2.  Edited on my Android Smartphone. Sorry for my absence these days but I find Instagram to be much more fun!

Jane Rau Trail - This brand new trail is located at Browns Ranch and was named after one of the first advocates of our McDowell Sonoran Preserve. Jane is now in her 90s and still riding her bike! The trail has spectacular scenery and thus is a photographer's dream. It's very short and hard packed making it accessible to wheelchairs so it is bound to become a favorite with everyone. Jane Rau at Brown's Ranch Trailhead

Tis' The Season! - I just donated a bunch of framed prints to the McDowell Sonoran Conservancy. (All images are from the McDowell Sonoran Preserve). Since 100% of the proceeds go to them, I hope those of you in the area will consider starting your holiday shopping there! Prints start at $15. (The small frames are my favorite:-) The office is in the office complex at the Promenade Shopping Center at Frank Lloyd Wright and Scottsdale. 480-998-7971  Please tell your friends! Thanks :-)

(Two days in a row on G+!...I really do miss it here. I just wish it didn't take so much time :-(

I am Under Their Spell! - Checking in  with #alienabductionfriday to let you know I think I've been abducted. The reason I only "think" this is because I'm having such a great time! Anyway...forgive me for being absent. I hope to return one of these days. Actually...I'm having such a great time....maybe not :-)

Just returned from fall color shooting in Flagstaff. Check out my blog for all my images. Sedona fall color is next! http://ezpixels.com/blog/

I See Fall Color in your Future! Yes...we DO have fall color in Arizona. This was captured in Flagstaff at Aspen Corner. I want to thank +Heidi Anne Morris for inspiring me to buy some glass orbs. I really love playing with them. (edited on my laptop so I have no idea how it will look on your screen)

I'm sure many of you have read or seen TV programs showing things that wait in the depths of the ground for just a little rain. Then they come to life. I saw this first hand yesterday! Very exciting :-)

Just checking in with my G+ friends and also with #alienabductionfriday . Yes...I've been sucked into a black hole (of sorts) but I'm having a great time so can it be a bad thing?! In fact, I feel sure I'll be stronger from the experience. In the meantime, thought you might enjoy seeing what I've been up to. I just finished 6 blog posts with lots of images. I head to another location almost immediately so more to come. Thanks for looking and See you soon!

Vacation from Google Plus – I leave this week for some time in Flagstaff and I plan to do the same the next two months.  My goals while away will be enjoying the cooler temperatures and photographing wildflowers, butterflies, birds and fungi. I also hope to finish a few Blurb books. To make the most of my time, I will be taking a break from Google Plus until late September.  While away, I also plan to work on my time management skills so I can start enjoying G+ like I used to :-)

Rootbound? - Coming to you directly from my Alien Detector app on my smartphone is proof of a connection between Aliens and the plant world. Is this Alien Creature planting or harvesting?! Either way, keep your wits about you the next time you pass a dead tree. It might not be dead after all. Shiver…..

Monsoon Sunset - Most people equate "Monsoon" with rain storms but the literal translation is "seasonal wind blowing from the southwest in summer". Although these winds do bring rain sometimes, none has fallen yet. We do get wonderful clouds and colorful skies at sunrise and sunset, though! (You might like to know this was captured hand held with my tiny Canon Powershot N. )

Comments disabled but I REALLY appreciate your plus 1s!!!

Monsoon Sunrise - Sunrises during our summer Monsoon can be short but very sweet! If you're up early enough, you can catch it before the sun goes behind the clouds. Ordinarily, I would have been on my belly to get this composition but An articulating screen saved the day. On a more serious note....there are forces beyond our control moving in with those clouds!

Red Sky At Morning - You may have heard that some parts of Arizona will heat up to 120 degrees (48.8C) today. Crazy!!! I had a strong feeling regarding what might be causing it so I used my Alien Abduction App on my sunrise image this morning. My suspicions are correct. Pray for us…..

Three Cooper's Hawk Chicks - Captured with my trusty Canon SX50 at Boyce Thompson Arboretum this morning. The nest was high (HIGH) in a Eucalyptus Tree in the Australian Outback section of the gardens. Copper's Hawks nest in these trees every year but usually there are just one or two so it was a treat to see three healthy chicks!

See what else I captured this morning: http://ezpixels.com/blog/

Visions of the Past? - These images were captured on the sides of a new trailhead building in our Preserve (View Large) . Being obsessed with Rock Art, I instantly thought they looked very much like story telling symbols to me. Could they be hieroglyphics showing the origin of alien life on earth? They were beyond the capability of my Alien Detector App so I went to the internet. A quick search enlightened me to Tep Zepi which is described as an age when “sky Gods” came down to Earth and raised the land from mud and water. If they are hieroglyphics, what are they doing on this building? One explanation could be that the builder used reclaimed metal but where did this metal come from?!

During my quest of searching for Alien Activity where we least expect it, I have this warning….Check your Gardens!!! I am currently working to enlarge my butterfly garden by adding plants the different species of butterflies require and this plant was my latest addition. I did notice the strange buds and pods on it when I planted it but I was blown away by the resulting bloom the next morning! If you look really close, you’ll see there is a sentry at the opening of the flower.

My purpose for my butterfly garden is three-fold. *First*…I’ve long suspected butterflies as also being in kahoots with Aliens. *Second*…I’m more easily able to keep track of the already suspicious insects visiting this garden. *Lastly*…they’re just so darned pretty! The latter will no doubt be my downfall.

Butterfly Wonderland - Popping in to let anyone in the vicinity of Scottsdale/Phoenix (or who find themselves here several times a year) that Butterfly Wonderland is finally open and that their $99 Lifetime Membership special is available until June 15. With admission of $18.95 this is a real deal! http://www.butterflywonderland.com/admission-lifetime-membership.html

This image is a selfy. I held my little Canon N close to the butterfly and prayed it would focus. I got lucky on the second shot!

Acmon Blue – This extremely small butterfly was so far away, I had to zoom out to the maximum 1200mm of my Canon SX50 and yet despite a very busy background, the camera was still able to achieve focus. Impressive! OK…I will admit it took a few tries to get focus but considering I wouldn’t have this image at all even with my longest DSLR lens, it is a small trade-off. To give perspective, the leaf he is sitting on is just 3.8cm across. (Pineywoods Geranium - Geranium caespitosum)

Great Horned Owlet –This is the same Saguaro I visit every year. Last year, nothing. The year before, there were three. There are two Owlets this year but even after waiting over an hour, the other one still had his back turned.  Not a very good quality image but I could not believe my little Canon Powershot N could reach this far! This was digital zoom but it was the only camera I had with me so I’m very happy. I hope to go back later with an SLR and my Canon SX50 and get higher quality shots of both babies.  http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/great_horned_owl/id

(still can't figure out how to share a single image from an existing album. Very frustrating)

Bloody Net-winged Beetle - I’m on belly surveillance duty again this week and came across this 17mm long (slightly over ½ inch) creature. He’s a Smart little guy. Just look at him with his cute little “hello” wave but I’m not fooled for a minute! Sure…he seems very friendly but my Alien Detector App tells me different. Imagine a red sky made up of an army of these guys….

Marine Blue (Leptotes marina) - These miniscule butterflies are here in great numbers laying eggs on Mesquite and nectaring on catkins of Mesquite and Cat Claw Acacia. Who can resist butterfly faces :-) (http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/species/Leptotes-marina)

Brown-crested Flycatcher - This time I looked out of my kitchen window for birds and spotted a single Brown-crested Flycatcher. As I was shooting, a second one comes to the branch below! I had to use the full 1200mm reach of the Canon SX50 so the image isn’t very sharp but I’m so happy to have this photo of them :-)  (http://birds.audubon.org/birds/brown-crested-flycatcher)

Stalking Aliens  – I decided to do some reconnaissance in the desert last night and now I’m on the run. Requesting backup asap!

Desert Digger Bee (Centris pallida) - Doing his job taking care of my Prickly Pear Cactus this afternoon. I love our native bees! http://askabiologist.asu.edu/explore/desert-digger-bees

(captured with a Canon Powershot N and is almost straight out of the camera!)

Echinopisis via Android - A nice surprise this morning! However, being in a hurry, the only camera I had time for was my Android. I'm never disappointed!

House Finch Enjoying Ocotillo Blooms - Captured with my Canon SX50 through my living room window. It’s truly like having a camera inside really high powered binoculars! Love it. (http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/House_Finch/id)

Funnel-web Spider – I’ve long suspected spiders were in cahoots with aliens (especially this species) so I decided to venture deep into a web. I wasn’t afraid because I knew our Funnel-web spiders are not related to the poisonous ones around the world but even so, I didn’t get far before I decided to re-think my decision.  http://fireflyforest.net/firefly/2008/05/12/funnel-web-spider/

Reptile Survey at Granite Mountain - Last night was our monthly Herp Survey. This time we went to a newly acquired area for the Preserve...Granite Mountain. I hope this image gives some sense of how spectacular the scenery is! We hiked for 5 hours but didn't find very much. A fantastic night, though! Here's a link to some images: http://ezpixels.com/herp-04-2013/

All photos captured with Canon SX50 and my Adroid Smartphone!

Johnson's Jumper (Phidippus johnsoni)- I feel confident about the identity but please correct me if you think otherwise. The stripe apparently indicates it is a female. I found her on a hike in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve a few days ago. No macro lens with me but I’m a documenter and always want to show the surroundings so I got a wide angle macro with the Canon SX50  :-) http://bugguide.net/node/view/15152/bgimage
