I am taking part in a WordPress “class” over the next few weeks that focuses on photography. Since I haven’t been able to blog often recently, I intend to use the class as a challenge to get a photo up each day of the class so I can get back in the habit of blogging. I’ll try to keep it as insect focused as possible, but a few non-insect things will show up, including my first photo in the series. The theme is home, so I choose this photo I recently took during a trip back to Arizona:
I’ve only been back in the state three times since I moved to North Carolina, and two of those were merely layovers on flights to other places. The recent visit was a real trip to see friends and family and spend some time back home. The photo above was taken of the land just behind the hotel where I was staying and represents home to me. I absolutely love the Sonoran Desert and the wildness of the land. What a spectacularly beautiful place! And since I haven’t spent much time there for a few years, I was struck by just how much life is out there. It was sadly just a little too early in the year to see very many insects, but that desert is home to thousands of species, many that are unique and strange and wonderful. I will share a few of my finds in upcoming posts.
Hope you enjoy the frequent posting for the next few weeks! I am looking forward to the challenge.
