We have been having record rainfall out here in the desert Southwest (CA, USA). As a result, the wildflower bloom has been the most intense in recent memory.

I'd like to share a few of my favorite shots (so far) of some of the flora and fauna that have colored our normally stark, beige desert into a kaleidoscope of colors!

this is an unknown species of larval moth/butterfly on a Desert Pincushion (Chaenactis stevioides).

comments welcome.
