All around us, everything is currently in bloom. Here in the high desert of New Mexico, this is such a brief moment in time that we had to capture it and share it with you. In reality, it is just another excuse to play with our fabulous, but slightly preowned cameras.
Just after I finished watering the garden this morning, a visitor appeared, and I just thought you might enjoy seeing it. In case you are wondering what kind of snake this is, it turns out to be a harmless gopher snake (at least harmless to humans). It quickly disappeared behind the straw bales (yikes), still warming our garden bed. I’ll definitely be very careful tomorrow when approaching the garden.
In my attempt to capture an image of the snake, there was no time to switch to a different lens. These photos were taken with a fixed 50mm f/1.8. No photoshop, or cropping, just straight out of the camera.
Wish me luck, let’s hope the snake likes me.
