It's all good

Got to the oasis at daylight to discover over .4" in the rain gauge from rain that fell over the last two days. There was a little accumulation in the upper dirt tank that I transferred to the stucco tank, bringing the level in it up to 27" below the full point. After that rain over three weeks ago it was 21" from being full, so that's great. I've been watering from that tank exclusively, too. And there's still plenty of room in the tank for the next big rain. When rainy season ends I should have all tanks full and holding.

Here's a photo of an Insecta Unknownii

I saw this Common Ground-Dove. I don't get them here very often, so was a bit surprised to see it.

Really not a lot going on at the oasis, if you don't count all the odonate mating and hummingbird courtship displays.
