I relocated to the Arizona desert in 2013 in an area that some might describe as the middle of nowhere, but Las Vegas, Nevada is only an hour drive. When I'm sitting on my deck at the back of the house, I feel that I am in the middle of nowhere and I love it.
I can see Joshua trees, cactus and mountains for miles, clear and unobstructed. The best part is when the animals come around and the birds, so many birds! It's a joy to watch them all.
I've tried to capture photos of all the wildlife and this article is a composition of the birds in the desert.
