Allens Hummingbird subspecies endemic to the Channel Islands.
This is the best picture of a hummingbird I've ever taken. You can even see the teensy claws! It was tuckered out (I guess) and tolerated my creeping and stalking and photo taking for a while before flitting off to suck the nectar out of more morning glories.
I tried, unsuccessfully, to get a picture of one of the many hundreds of two different species buzzing about the eucalyptus grove earlier, but they were darting too quickly for me to get the right focus.
Day 4: I’m exhausted 😂 but this trip has been nothing short of amazing so far. Woke up at 4 am (Eli slept until 5 lol), hiked around @joshuatreenps, saw the Cholla cactus garden, Eli was sworn in as a junior ranger (Ranger Jim was great!), then we had lunch in Palm Springs and now it’s time for bed! 😁😴
"Everybody should do in their lifetime, sometime, two things. One, is to consider death. To observe scowls and skeletons and to wonder what it would be like to go to sleep and never wake up. Never. That is a very gloomy thing for contemplation, but it's like manure. Just as manure fertilizes the plants and so on. So the contemplation of death and the acceptance of death, is very highly generative of creative life. You get wonderful things out of that. And the other thing to contemplate, is to follow the the possibility of the idea that you are totally selfish. That you don't have a good thing to be said about you at all. You are a complete, utter rascal. Now when you go deeply into the nature of selfishness, what do you discover? You say I love myself if I seek my own advantage. Now what is the self I love? What do I want? And that becomes an increasingly, ever deepening puzzle."

Water Canyon, Bryce Canyon National Park. Because it is accessed through Hwy 12 rather than the main park road, Water Canyon is a much quieter area and is unusual because only its top is covered with hoodoos, while a stream flows its base. The mostly flat 1-mile (round-trip) trail ends at a grotto filled with moss in the summer. My first visit to the cave was in November when thin ice stalactites filled it. In a late March visit, I was surprised to find them much thicker, and less photogenic. The area around Mossy Cave has several natural arches that I enjoy scrambling to explore. I made the photograph just when the shadows were about to creep up the rock formations.

This picture was only possible due to the help and guidance of a few professional photographers I met while hiking up the Virgin River. The mid-afternoon sun was blowing out the canyon wall ahead of me, but with their help I got it dialed in to capture the beauty of Zion.

On our most recent trip we camped in the car near the ski hill the night before so that we could be the first ones on the mountain. But when we woke up there was a light dusting of snow!! We soaked up a few moments before hitting the slopes and I got this magical photo!! ☃️ ❄️
