Wild Life, San Luis National Wildlife Refuge, California

I entertained myself by photographing the tule elks and the migratory birds fluttering in the wetlands. The whole place vibrated with life.

Wild Flowers

I found flowers growing directly from the ground, without a plant, stems, or leaves. Others emerged from rocks, and their shoots crawled over the dry surface, covering it with colors.

Birds

The silhouettes of ducks swimming and fishing contrasted against the fantastic pink waters. In a nearby tree, there was a large nest, but it was so dark and backlit that I could only see its shape.
