Inktober 2018 is over. Here is the last batch of drawings, some of the Sonoran Desert's more dangerous creatures in honor of Halloween. I've enjoyed the challenge of drawing something new every day.
1. Gila monster
2. Arizona desert tarantula
3. Western diamondback rattlesnakes
5. Tarantula hawk
6. Bark scorpion
The critters in Grandma's neighborhood.
3. yellow-footed tortoise
5. bighorn sheep
(The yellow-footed tortoise is not native to the Sonoran Desert, but that didn't stop one from wandering through the neighborhood.)
The critters in Grandma's yard.
1) Harris's antelope ground squirrel
2) zebra-tailed lizard
3) Arizona myotis
4) desert cottontail
5) packrat (aka desert woodrat)
6) Merriam's kangaroo rat
The birds at Grandma's bird feeders (one of them is not as welcome as the others).
1) Gambel's quail
2) cactus wren
4) young Cooper's hawk
5) curve-billed thrasher
6) Gila woodpecker
7) house finch
8) mourning dove
