Lots and lots of cotton fields as we were leaving Coolidge, AZ.
The Arizona Sonora Desert Museum. I took a lot of pictures, there were also a lot of things I didn't take pictures of. It is a MUST SEE place for everyone. One of the top 10 museums in America according to Trip Advisor. This car was at the entrance. It was Studebaker Nash. It belonged to a man who used it in the 50's to bring critters to schools. Critters like snakes, spiders, birds. He even had a cougar at one time. This huge rock, and several others, were at the entrance.
The first exhibit was a small aquarium. It had fish displayed that were native to rivers and lakes in Arizona, and some species that were endangered. I don't think these are native, but they were cool.
Oh, the butterflies! Richard has a much nicer picture than I have, he has a much nicer camera. They were all over, especially in this garder specifically planted for butterflies. This was right next to the building I really wanted to see.
I did go to the regular aviary, and I was kind of disappointed. Nothing interesting in there. I saw 3 types of birds, and they were just like the ones I see regularly around here. I was hoping for a road runner, actually. I asked the lady at the gift shop how often she sees them. She said "All the time! But come to think of it, I haven't seen any since October 4." So I took a pic of a tiny feather.

I believe this is the same hummingbird in the three pictures. When he came out into the sun, he just glowed!
Need better camera when I come back.
