Arizona wild life – stop here

In 2009, while Donald rode his bike 120 miles including a 30 mile mountain climb, I went to the Saguaro national park in Tucson, Arizona and plein aire painted this little scene. A very ubiquitous plant here is the prickly pear, and in this painting it is joined by some Saguaros and a Cactus Wren. The Cactus wren is a loquacious and fearless little bird. It had a lot of different things to say. During this trip, we became acquainted with them. Really neat little birds.
