On January 12, 2016, a feather floated by on a pond at the Gilbert Preserve at Water Ranch in Gilbert, Arizona. The poem that I have posted below is by one of my mother's favorite poets, Emily Dickinson. Link to the poem's source is HERE
Two other photos of mine were chosen in the Honorable Mention section of the calendar/magazine for the 2017 calendar. They are located at the top left of the first two pages after the December photo. The first one is of a Canyon Towhee taken in Hereford at Batiste's Birding B&B and the other is of a Mockingbird taken at Riparian Preserve at Water Ranch in Gilbert, Arizona.
Canyon Towhee - Honorable Mention
Mockingbird - Honorable Mention
This is the second year that I have submitted to the Arizona Desert Views Magazine for their wildlife photo contest. Last year, I had a winning photo of Hooded Orioles that was published in the calendar as the August image. See the Hooded Orioles image HERE.
The 2017 calendar may be purchased at any Game and Fish office in Arizona for $3.00.
