Today is the first day of Spring. In Gold Canyon, the prickly pear cactus are showing spring growth.
Birds are nesting. We suspect this dove is sitting on a nest. We didn't disturb her to find out, but she (or he) didn't move as we edged closer to look. Several years ago, a dove built a nest in our RV hitch about this time of year. Unfortunately, we had to move the 5th wheel before the eggs hatched. John carefully carried the nest and eggs to a(relatively) safe place for them. We have no idea what happened.
This bug appeared. I have never seen one like it and have no idea what it is.
I don't know if the weather is related to the beginning of Spring, but just before sunset, the sky turned dark to the east while the setting sun was still shining.
We could tell there was moisture in the air because this rainbow appeared. The very top of the bow was missing.
We did get a brief rain out of those clouds, in addition to lightening and thunder.
