Taken in Tucson, Arizona using a Canon Powershot SX10IS

The Mexican Amberwing occurs from Southwestern New Mexico to southern California and southern Nevada, and ranges south into Mexico. It is widespread from Sea level to several thousand feet in elevation, but does not occur in the high mountains or dense forests. What for them on vegetation at pond and lake edges or the slower backwaters of streams. Like other amberwings they will occasionally sit on top of shrubs or weedy growth some distance for the water. Unlike Eastern and Slough Amberwings, Mexican Amberwings lacks well defined spots or stripes on the side of the the thorax.

My goal is to get my name out there among the vast ocean of Natural photographers. To be known for my skill with a Point & Shoot~

My images are not photo shopped. They have only been adjusted with basic sharpening, contrasting & saturation techniques. I believe that in order to appreciate Nature, you have to capture it as it is, naturally.
