Cactus Wren Pair on Cholla Cactus

April 4th, 2011, seetharam

An image that was on my mind for several years. Happened this weekend finally. I found this Cactus Wren pair hanging around Cholla Cactus at about 11 AM and waited till 4 PM to get it in better light. I figured they would do something special. Patience paid off with this image.
