Another beautiful evening......

It has been beautiful in the desert lately. And, I have been fortunate to go out and enjoy the great spring like weather... These are some of the pictures I took during my evening walk today...


I am constantly amazed at how such delicate flowers thrive in our harsh climate...

Love the orange ...

Peek-a-boo with a Curve-billed Thrasher.

Another gorgeous Arizona sunset...

A fitting end to a relaxing day...

With a promise of another day to come...

It was made on the premises that the works of Shakespeare were not created by him but by Elizabethan aristocrat, Edward de Vere, 17th Earl of Oxford. He did not want his name to be known for various reasons. I was really impressed by the dialogues, the storyline, costumes and sets. If you get a chance to watch the movie - than don't miss it! :)

An lazy afternoon with friends and family?

On an recent visit to the pacific coast I was enamored by these amazing, wonderful creatures. It was so much fun to watch them, they seemed almost drugged with sleep-only time they moved was to find just the right corner to snuggle in...

He was bigger than other in the group- almost an alpha male- - making his displeasure very evident for disturbing his sleep.

They look so angelic in their sleep, one can easily forget the tremendous strength and power they possess....

The perfect rock...

About the lost earring and peacock…….

Peacock on a neem tree...

I was tagged by “the lost earring”  and these were the rules of this photo tag:
1. Open your first photo folder.

2. Scroll to the 10th photo.
3. Post the photo on your blog and tell the story behind it and
4. Tag people to do the same.

This picture was the 10th photo in my first folder, and the story is really not much of a story!

Last year during my trip to India, on my very first morning there, I saw this gorgeous peacock with amazing tail full of spectacular feathers, right in my uncle's backyard...yup there ....again :)Well, not only was he stunning with dazzling colors, he was also very elusive… I was not able to get a really good shot of him….. this is one of the better ones....

Now comes the good part….I pass the tag on to
Mridula, Anu, Bueno Aires Photoblog and JM

Happy posting!

Woodpeckers ? (hoopoe) in mom’s backyard

I was sipping on my herbal (tusli-Indian basil and Ginger) tea one morning (yum-yum - another story) when I spotted couple of woodpeckers in the yard.

They are such beautiful birds with beautiful stripes and amazing plume (?) on their head- which fans out. I presume when they are excited…I am not sure though, would have to research it a bit further.

The one in the first picture still had some fuzzy growth around his neck; I am guessing he was still young at the time.

Excitement .....

We were driving towards Delhi when I took this picture. There was so much excitement in their eyes for the celebration they were about to participate in. The picture was taken through the windshield of the car- in a moving car!

His eyes almost saying- nothing can faze me….
