I'm a photographer in Tucson, Arizona and the Sonoran Desert is a beautiful and diverse place to live. More than 100 reptiles, 2,000 native plants, 60 mammals, and 350 birds call this desert home, not only surviving here, but thriving — as long as their habitats remain intact.

This shot was taken at Westward Look Resort many years ago. I waited a whole day for a little patch of clouds to form and when they did, I was on a mad dash to find something cool to take a picture of. This is what I found.
