Meet me at the water cooler

Another shot I took to experiment with the macro seting on the 70 - 300mm zoom. Other than the rain we had here (but not in Tucson) several weeks ago, it has been months since the last rain. This hose bib leaks several gallons per day, and I had intended on fixing it, but since everything is so dry, it has become an important water source for birds, mammals and insects. Canon 20D - 1/160th, macro, f/20, ISO 800

I just returned from Tuscon. On a bird walk in Catalina I saw a towhee scratching the dust for grubs or insects. It was heart-breaking. It's difficult not to project human sensiblities onto the fauna of this remarkable landscape. Still . . . I appreciate your not mending the leak.

Your bird and sky and telescope pixes are terrific. My son is a planetary scientist out of BU and did work at Mt. Lemon during his stint at the Univerity of Colorado. Such a fascinating field.
