This magnificent wild stallion just knows, he is all that and a bag of chips. He pranced around, leaped in the air, fought with another stallion or two, and generally was a complete joy to watch.
We went out the other morning looking for horses, and came across a nice group of bachelor stallions. Mornings are generally a good time to see some rambunctious behavior anyway, and a bachelor group is always ripe for action.
This strawberry roan was feeling like a million bucks, and was letting everyone know it.
After he mixed it up with this guy, he started in with another stallion. This one was more willing to put him in his place too.
I believe we have found our new favorite spot in Arizona. Wildlife photography is my passion, and this area has provided me a nice variety to photograph.
The other day we had to go into town and do laundry, go to the store, all that mundane stuff. We usually take our cameras with us, because you just never know what you’ll see. We were driving along when I saw this hawk on a saguaro. Al, being the good hubby he is, stopped and went back so I could get photos. I watched him for a while, and could tell he was getting ready to fly. They always get a little unsettled right before flight. And then…..
We came back to the Salt River on Monday, and I’m so glad we did. It really is nice here. Green, wildlife, open spaces. Everything I like.
This morning I walked through the desert, and down to the river. I’ve been on the hunt for birds, or of course the wild horses. I saw a couple of cardinals yesterday, but couldn’t get a good photo. I’m hoping that changes. Anyway, I did get to watch a Great Egret doing a little yoga on the river, so that was awesome. It’s so nice these guys don’t fly away the second they see you, like the blue herons.
I sat patiently after spotting him, and pretty soon the yoga began.
