 It's yucca-blooming time in the southwest.


The flowers are large and sturdy, yet surprisingly short-lived.


 Because pronghorn. They strip the stalks clean.


Busted.

    NOW the little guy shows up! Did he say why he didn't come by to say hello while I was there watching for him?

    I feel like I only see pictures of them when it's the warmer months?

    1. They're always around, but my camera and I are more likely to be indoors during the winter.
