Seven Days Later

I was able to find the Lesser Nighthawks chicks again during a walk in the desert behind our place when the adult Lesser Nighthawk flew away.
This time the chicks were more out in the open instead of directly under a cholla cactus but it was still amazing how well they blended into the desert floor.

The camouflage is amazing, when I looked at the thumbnail I wasn't sure what I was going to see, isn't nature wonderful! An outstanding set of captures Jim! BV

Wow. They do blend in. Cool to see how they are growing. Again, very cool find, Jim.
