Jan 26, 2015 DUSA Reports: Rain is forecasted for the park today. A light sprinkling of rain early this morning

Jan 26, 2015 CTS Reports: Anza Borrego - wash just west of the Palm Canyon Campground was showing Desert Lavender, lots of buds and it rained when I was there. 1-8-2015 took this pic. Chuparosa was blooming with many buds also. Look for the Hummingbirds working both species. Costa's and Anna's both visited our feeder.

Special word of Thanks to "Tom" for ID of the ambrosia acanthicarpa, bur ragweed , I submitted from Arizona November 2014. Appreciate the help and knowledge.


Jan 12, 2015 Dan Reports: Overall flowering was sparse, but thousands of annual seedling were germinating, for instance white fiesta flower. If conditions don't dry out, peak season could be good. Regardless, it's always good to hike in the desert. Here are some photos from Anza Borrego.

More Information

Photos tips: Most digital point-and-shoot cameras have a macro function - usually symbolized by the icon of a little flower. When you turn on that function, you allow your camera to get closer to the subject, looking into a flower for example. Or getting up close and personal with a bug. More on desert photography and wildflowers photos.
