I've seen lots of deer tracks out there, but never any deer. Today I finally saw 5 of them, though. I took six pictures but only managed to get a deer in one of them. They kept hiding behind cacti and Palo Verdes.
I came across a wild beehive in a hole in the side of a wash. I tried to take pictures of them but the bees just didn't show up.
You could find the ironwood trees with your eyes closed today. They are covered with flowers. Just listen for all the bees buzzing and there's an ironwood.

You would think that if your camera shutter was open for about 40% of the time, you would catch about 40% of the lightening flashes. I only got about 10% of them. I took 149 pictures tonight (a few were of mountains and clouds) and 12 of them had lightening in them. This is why I don't gamble.
Since the lightening was far away and spread across the horizon, I had to be zoomed out to catch any of it. I had to crop most of the pictures so they wouldn't look like a tiny light in a sea of black.

In some places out there, the soil is very red. It would look just like Mars if it weren't for the plants and animal tracks in the dust.
