The Mexican White Winged Doves sitting atop the Saguaro are taking in the beauty of a an ordinary summer evening. Ordinary, that is, for Tucson, Arizona. Daytime highs in excess of 100 degrees get the press around the country. What they don't tell you in Atlanta, Philadelphia, Sacramento or Chicago is that the humidity tops out at 45 percent, and the evenings are comfortable and bug-free.
No mosquitoes, no black flies, no horseflies. The only screened-in porches in Tucson were built by snowbirds who had no idea that screens aren't a necessary part of outdoor living here in the Old Pueblo.
I took this photo in the community of Shadow Hills while visiting a friend last night. The view, though, was pretty much the same all over the Tucson valley.
