This shot was done in an early morning while the marine layer was starting to burn off…
Today we were out on the New River Trail. We were riding along on our bikes and came upon this Red Tail Hawk hunting the river below.
What a rare treat to see this crab spider snatch a bee right out of the air when he got just a little too close… and amazingly, hold his prey, even though it was twice his size!
This shot of a Cactus Bee was taken on Highway 89 heading towards Prescott, Arizona.
This little guy lives at the Phoenix Zoo.
