2023 Wildflower Reports New Mexico
May 1 2023 Wesley Reports: Valley of Fires in New Mexico is full of blooming desert indigo, claret cup cactus and banana yucca at this time.
Mar 18 2023 Dan Reports: Luna County, New Mexico - First two images were taken in the foothills of the Little Floridas (west side, adjacent to Rockhound SP) on 3/15. First image is my driveway, where the poppies (Eschscholzia californica ssp Mexicana) have been gathering momentum since January!
Last image 3/10, West side of big Floridas (Capitol Dome feature), where poppy growth is just getting underway. Enough 2022 moisture to maybe make this a 10 year event.

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.
