Sunset was by far the best time to shoot out at Henderson Canyon in the Anza-Borrego Desert. Crowds had dispersed for the most part, the sun was at a great angle, the light was warm and there was no wind to speak of. Really a lovely late afternoon.
Beyond the horribly invasive mustard, at this location, there were three species of wildflowers most in evidence: Desert Sand Verbena, the purplish pink flower seen here in the background, Brown-Eyed Evening Primrose, shown in an earlier macro, and Desert Gold, the luminous yellow and orange sunflower featured in this closeup.
