Awesome Find in Sandia Park, NM

took these photos of a Red-Tailed Hawk in Sandia Park New Mexico while taking a walk.

I was so happy that I went back and got my camera before going out. I can’t believe how close it let me get.  When it didn’t fly away I thought it might be hurt.

Butterflies Are Beautiful

I love Butterflies!

…and here are a few pictures that I have taken of butterflies and moths in Sandia Park New Mexico.

This butterfly was identified as a Two-tailed Swallowtail by BAMONA, the Butterflies and Moths of North America project.  Here is a link to the recorded sighting:

Not a butterfly but a cool capture of a moth on a pretty weed
