At The Heart of It All

On a hot Tucson day, I sat down in the shade and filmed flowers and butterflies......because there are so many around this time of year.  We all patiently wait for the rains to arrive.  For now most of us can be found outside during the early mornings or late evenings.
You see, we're still here but during the hot summer afternoon sun we all like to hide in the shade of a patio, a grove of trees, our homes, under a rock, under a bush.....or in the heart of a tree.
"Come back later.", we tell our friends as we are taking a siesta from the intense sun.  Mojitos at 8 tonight:)

  6. Dawn and dark are natural relief, but I hear you from 9 am to 7 pm...keep it dark and cool-feeling! Funny how the monsoon season will awaken us humans, just like the desert flora and fauna. When I first moved to Abq, people said "it's the sun that makes you tired", even in winter...now, I get it.

  13. Beautiful shots, love all of them.
    We could do we some heat here.
    As I write this we have 4 C (middle of the night), it's to cold for my garden.
