Living in the desert

Tuesday morning Wallagrass, Maine greetings to one and all!

Yes, Wallagrass, Maine! Wallagrass is about as far North in the continental United States that you can go before you are in Canada. I’m up here for a couple of days on a shoot before getting back home later this week. It’s been a crazy last couple of months with road trips to Arizona, Texas (twice), Oklahoma and West Virginia and a lot of miles driving and flying during that time. Being busy is always a good thing and yes we have been busy, so I’m not complaining!

While Jan and I were in Tucson, Az. back in early April, one of our places to stop in and shoot some photos was The Living Desert Zoo and Museum. It’s located West of downtown Tucson and Saguaro National Park West and well worth a visit. They have really done a great job laying out the grounds at Living Desert and you can spend a number of hours there walking around seeing all the different desert vegetation and also some of the animals. We were there in early October and although it was hot, but not to insanely hot, a number of the animals were out and not under shade to escape the heat and sun. Jan was able to get some great shots of one of the Bobcats and I found a little lizard that was out catching some rays on the rocks! Besides all the animals that are there, there’s also a bunch of different cactus and other plants that you would find out in the desert! Indeed it’s a photographers paradise and we made the best of it!

Here’s our shots from The Living Desert Zoo and Museum of a couple of our little friends!

It’s time to get to work, so we hope that you’re going to have a great rest of this week and thanks as always for taking the time to check out our photos!

Thanks again!!!

Kev and Jan
