|Blue Mud Dauber. Look carefully and you'll see that this wasp has captured dinner:) It ran quickly into its nest under the trunk of a tree. Very cool find!|

In the gray and very humid atmosphere, we could see shots of color. Remember that plants with long tubular flowers are attractive to hummingbirds....especially ones with orange and red color.:) Perhaps this is why Miller Canyon is renown for all the hummingbird sightings.

As the sun set, we walked the trails alone surrounded by butterflies, deer and lots of birds.
Best time to go hiking is after a gentle rain event. Always keep an eye open at the washes. NEVER cross them during a rainstorm. If there is a lot of lightening, do not hike. But when things have calmed down, it's really a great time to get out and enjoy the rain cooled air. And the answer to my favorite bird home. Option 13. The Muy Mexicano or blue and white tile home. Thanks everyone for chirping in your comments. That was fun:) More tomorrow....
