A brand-new shiny windmill in a field along the road out of Water Canyon (Magdalena Mountains).
Claret Cup Cactus Blossoms
Brilliant claret cup blossoms in bloom a few weeks ago.
Ojito Rock Formations
Rock formations in the Ojito Wilderness with an especially dramatic sky in the background.
A carpet of white evening primroses in the southern end of the Sandia foothills a few weeks ago. They are essentially night bloomers, which means the best time to see them is early in the morning.
I saw numerous Mormon metalmarks on La Luz (in the Sandias) earlier today. These gorgeous little butterflies were focusing much of their attention on these small asters.
