Notes While it was a super hot and sunny day in October, I waited for a cloud to cover the sun before making this photo using the Pixel’s portrait mode. I love it for the fall colors and the detail of the plant that pop out from the background so well. The composition is unusual since the focal point is so centered, but I think it works.

Notes I was visiting a US Border Patrol facility in Arizona when I saw this lizard warming on a rock. The slats in the fence allow small creatures to pass back and forth but it reminded me that any other animals that migrate can get stuck by our border fences, depending on where they cross.
