We spent an afternoon in the Botanic Gardens in Phoenix.
There were tons of cacti, of course, but also quite a bit of wildflowers, which attracted lots of hummingbirds and butterflies. Even in the intense mid-day heat, there were all sorts of wonderful critters scurrying around.
That's a roadrunner! He was hiding in a dense tree, chatting up some ladies nearby.
This guy found some shade and didn't look like he was about to move.
