instagramaz Tucson resident, Amy Stephens, (@wesahs) was out hiking on the Ventana Canyon Trailhead on the way to Maiden Pools when she spotted this Desert Tortoise. Desert tortoises spend November through February in a dormant state in their underground burrows three to six feet deep to escape the cold of winter and the heat of summer in the Sonoran Desert, spending up to 98% of their time underground. Their most active time is in the spring when they will forage for food. Amy took this photo with an iPhone6. Great capture!

instagramaz One more day to enter our 3rd Annual Black & White Photo Challenge! Check out some of these stunning images by: @raycleveland @arjunaimel @azblkbelt @gcon28 @intstashay.  Nothing quite compares to a well executed B&W photograph. With all color stripped away, there's more of an emphasis on form. Lighting and contrast play heavier roles; and, if done right you can create a more elegant and classic work of art than its colorful counterpart. Subject matter can be anything Arizona–related and (obviously) must be shot in AZ. Stay away from ALL color: that means no low-saturated or sepia tone photos either. Just black, white & greyscale. NEW photos only, but unlimited entries. Tag #instagramaz_bw15 AND #instagramaz. First-place winner will receive $30 to Amazon.com. Contest ends Saturday, February 28th at 8 PM. Our esteemed guest judge for this contest is @pk.photo (thanks Paul!) We are looking forward to seeing all of your amazing b&w entries! 6d
