instagramaz Congratulations to @oncosmith, the 1st Place winner in our 4th Annual Arizona Mountains Photo Challenge! Our guest judge Justin said sunsets in Sedona are among some of the best in the West and they don't get any more beautiful than Rossana's shot from last week of the sun falling behind the red rocks. It gave a wonderful glow to the landscape! Congratulations Rossana, you will receive a special InstagramAZ Prize Pack! Thanks to everyone who participated! Also, one last huge thanks to Justin (@the_power_of_failing) for being our guest judge for this challenge. Stay tuned for another exciting photo challenge coming soon! #instagramaz #azmountains 23h

instagramaz This amazing photo of a black bear was taken by Evan Dargen (@evanomd) while hiking near Bog Springs in the Santa Rita Mountains south of Tucson using a Nikon D5300 camera (300mm telephoto lens). As he approached the spring, Evan hoped to see wildlife getting a drink when he spotted this beautiful bear through the trees. Black bears, which may actually be black, brown, or reddish brown, are the only bear species still found in Arizona. Weighing 125-400 lbs, 3 and a half feet tall, 4-6 feet long, they are the smallest and most widely distributed North American bear. They like to roam around in the early morning or at dusk. They eat acorns, grubs, berries, insects, and cactus fruits. What a wonderful capture; thanks for tagging #azwildlife and #instagramaz, Evan.

instagramaz "About a month ago I headed east to shoot a dying thunderstorm near Gold Canyon, Arizona. I managed to get 1 or 2 shots from the dying storm but a few more storms popped up south and north of where I had setup. I was able to shoot several lightning shots of the storm to the south, coming out of Florence, and ended the night shooting this cell moving east from Gold Canyon to Superior. Shot on my Fuji X-T1 and processed in Lightroom." @larryreeves ________________________________________
