Live Desert

It is getting colder here in Arizona but a desert is still full of life! If you'd like to walk in the desert you can see all kind of creatures.
But of course, you should pay attention. I know this now, because I didn't! I was walking trying not to step on a black ants and suddenly heard that rattle noise. A rattle snake was bathing in a warm sun rays right next to a walking path! Lucky me, my husband was quick and took it to the brush.Good by and farewall, snaky! Hope we will not meet again!

A large desert tortoise was sitting right in the road. We thought it is better for him to be in a safe location and moved him off to the side of the road so that he would not get run over. Stay safe, cutie!
Of course, there is more wild life to see.Enjoy your walk and watch where you are walking! :)

Great pictures of the desert! I would love to see the desert wild life but not sure I would want to meet a snake though :)
