Arizona Grasslands, Skywatch Friday

Howdee all,

This Skywatch post comes from the grasslands outside of Patagonia, Arizona.

We love this part of Arizona. Just a bit over an hour south of Tucson.

Great birding and amazing scenery.

I have been enjoying using Windows Live writer for making these last three posts.

It is easier to arrange the photos, more font choices, more fun things to do with photos.
