Yeah, this is what I do…or what I really like to do. Get up close and personal. See small things that others might miss. Look more and more closely. So you can imagine that choosing photos for this wasn’t at all easy although it was fun. After I hit five, I stopped. But I hope you enjoy the five I chose and thanks to Anne for hostessing this week.

Even in Arizona, if you get high enough, you’ll see leaf color change. Mr. Lemmon tops out over 9,000′, reached by the scenic Catalina Highway. We drove up the 27-mile Catalina Highway, a designated scenic byway, Saturday, starting in the desert, ending in alpine forest by the ski area where we managed to catch some leaf color. Mountains!! Yeah!!

Not everything in nature is large and/or showy. Look closely and you can see other things that bring joy, such as this little cutie hiding among the reeds.

Look higher and you might see this somewhat fierce-looking guy sporting some very natty threads!

My friends in most of the rest of the US are talking about the chilling effect of fall/autumn. Believe me, we’re feeling the chill, too! It’s been 105 or below for the high for some days now and later this week, temperatures are set to plunge into the 90’s or possibly even 89 for the high! Getting my fleeces out from where they’re packed as we speak. We even have some leaves in fall colors, although most of them are still attached. 🙂 It’s definitely a new adventure.

Take a closer look.

I noticed some birds hanging around eating seeds, so I sat down for a bit, hoping they’d move close enough for a phone shot. That didn’t happen but I did get a closer look at some of the plants. I found these leaves rather attractive, but does everything in the desert have sharp edges? 🙂
