My World - Viewing Nature

Most mornings around sunrise I look at the sky from my window.

When it's light enough, I like to go for a little walk in my corner of the world, which happens to be the desert.

I marvel at yellow sunlight gracing various surfaces, and see what the plants look like on this particular day.

Birds are usually the first wildlife to catch my attention:

Many of these birds are common, but it's still exciting to view and listen to them.

Sometimes I encounter a species that I've never seen before, like these cedar waxwings, and that's a special thrill.

I've walked this path countless times before, yet I never grow bored of it. This month I will get to see some wildflowers, butterflies, ground squirrels and reptiles!
