Some critters from my hike (SX50)

Went on a hike up the north ridge of a canyon near my home named Red Butte. Spring is finally in full swing up there. I took a lot of wildflower and landscape shots that I will post later.

This post is dedicated the critters that I found along the way.

The day was mostly overcast but still warm. I saw this baby gopher snake on some rocks.

A very interesting pollinator. It looks like some sort of beetle.

A yellow Bellied Racer on the rocks.

He was kind enough to stop racing long enough to pose for this shot. A beautiful snake.

A tiny fuzzy blue butterfly, resting on a leaf.

I had my dogs with me so I was not able to sneak any closer to the following bird photos.

Spotted Towhee.

Lazaraz Bunting

House Finch

Western King Bird

Thanks for looking.
