You can see what I saw

I love Yellow-breasted Chats. Can't explain why, but they and Bell's Vireos are the two species that feel like indicator species for a healthy riparian Chihuahuan Desert oasis. Chats are so inventive in their calls, and always sound energetic and upbeat. The oasis is replete with them this year, to my great satisfaction.

While traversing a barren area near the oasis I came upon this Globeberry happily clinging to a spindly Catclaw Acacia. Go figure!

Not often do I see a butterfly out in the middle of the water taking a drink.

Or Red Saddlebags mating...

Here's a Kiowa Dancer.
