I am challenging myself to post a photo each day of the year. I am hoping that this challenge will encourage me to keep my eyes open for the wonders around me, document a great year and improve my photography techniques.

Pierre was the talk of the school that I visited this afternoon. His family had been involved in a "traffic accident" so Linda, the secretary with a heart of gold, rescued this little guy and plans to nurture him until he is ready to be on the prowl on his own.

One of my favorite things to do is to search for wildflowers. Anywhere really, but the challenge of what looks like an all tan desert is a great place to fine beautiful shapes and color. (Kind of like an Easter Egg hunt.)
