    Thanks. I'm hoping the wildflower bloom will be good this year. I got some ideas.

    Don't worry about it. It can be really hard to tell people's tones on the internet, which is really one big downfall of the communication aspect online. I could see how the way I typed the question could seem like I was brash, but I wasn't trying to be.

    As a side note that may be of interest to any desert rats that may be lurking-

    I'm using this on my Creosote bush scrub habitat page on my site;

    http://mojavedesert.net/desert-habitats/creosote-bush-scrub.html

    Pretty cool doc-shot I think although it is little tiny.

    Creosote bush, the darker, larger plants in the shot (about mid-shot and back) are thought to be some of the oldest living things in the world. There's one in particular (King Clone) that through cloning itself is thought to be between 9,000-11,500 years old.

    More about the creosote bush here;

    I count myself a member of that group, of the Chihuahuan part of the family.

    The smell of greasewood after a rain... Nothing like it!

    Thanks

    Thank you- I really like it myself, it seems that if it were any different and didn't have everything it has, it'd suck.

    It's a good group. I'm sure you know this, but I'll use it as an opportunity to reveal the secret to the rest of the world; If you miss the smell in a dry season, just cup your hands around the leaves, rub and take a whiff. Smells just like the rain.
