14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Desert Tortoise in Joshua Tree

4 miles in on a hike in Joshua Tree, we happened upon two Desert Tortoises snacking on Desert Blue Bells. They were not bothered at all by our presence and kept munching away while I carefully and respectfully snapped a few shots from a fairly close distance.
