In the desert, most of the animals are active at night. Many of the cactus bloom at night and so sunrise is a transitional period. The birds and small animals are active, but looking for a place to spend the heat of the day. Within a few hours, the temperature can soar over thirty degrees. Every few minutes it goes up another degree or two and there is a bustle getting ready to survive the heat of the day. Walking around, taking photographs, suddenly, we are too hot and it is time to go home.
