Arizona had a wet winter and spring, so it finally bode well for wildflowers in the desert. Thus, I made a few photo trips down from Flagstaff to augment the desert portfolio. Bartlett Lake northeast of Scottsdale, the Superstition Mountains and Apache trail east of Phoenix offer plenty of floral candy.
More than than just the images posted below can be seen in my spring desert gallery.https://www.plateaulightphotography.com/Landscapes/Arizona-Landscapes/Desert-Wildflowers/

Thanks for having a look. The cactus blooms are just starting so there will be more to photograph soon.
