Vacation Home Rentals: It Can Be Downright Spooky In The Desert At Night...

Downright spooky in the desert at night!I looked out the sliding glass door, and these two eyes glowed at me out of the darkness.

Grab the camera.

Camera out of the case.

Flash on. ISO Sensitivity, 800.

The eyes disappeared, leaving only inky blackness.  Had it left?  Perhaps it only looked away?

Sneak the sliding door open quietly.

Step out on the ramada.

Camera on.

The eyes appeared again out of the darkness, immobile, fixed on me.

Zoom in on the subject.   Flash!

Not so spooky after all!

This mule deer doe was munching on my neighbor's rosebush.  She wasn't spooked by the flash nearly as much as I was spooked by those glowing eyes!

Tucson Estates 2 is perfect for a short term fall or winter vacation.  Located up against Tucson Mountain Park's 140,000 acres of accessible wilderness, we are visited by the most magnificent desert dwellers. 

Short term rental of furnished single family homes can be available for much less than the price of a resort, and hey... You already know someone in the neighborhood.
