Arizona Dreamin’

White-nosed Coatimundi

I adore this photograph. I really do. It came up to me as we gazed lovingly into each other's eyes.  It's less formally known as a coati (ko-ah'-tee)and is a member of the racoon family.  I went to Madera Canyon for my ashiatsu massage (the kind she walks on your back) and ended up with my best  photo of a coati. This is a gorgeous animal. Check it out in large.

I got a call this morning from the person who bought my photo during the Tubac Center of the Arts exhibit. She wants to see more of my work. So I asked her what she was looking for specifically. 'Foxes, raccoons and lemurs.'  Lemurs?  I asked her if she'd like a coati (I have some good ones)  I wanted more to choose from, though.  This guy was there when I arrived and hung around for a good long while. She wants me to send her a selection of my work by email. That just ain't happening.

Also saw lions and tigers and bears, oh my.  Not really. But I did spy plenty of deer, birdies and bunny wabbits. All in all, a good day.

In other news...Four more sleeps until I spend a week up there. Also, I haven't gotten to the mono Monday entries yet but those I've seen so far have been very funny.
