Nature Photography: The Rains Return

After a three-month absence, an intermittent visitor has returned to the Southern Arizona desert.

While commonly referred to as “rain,” this visitor is also referred to as “relief” and less flattering terms, the most common of which is, “Where in the #$%^& have you been?”

The rain in my back yard was a welcome sight on my sagging prickly pear cactii. The increased moisture means that they’ll stand up straight again.
