Photographer's Note

Capitol Reef National Park has desert environment; therefore many plants and animals like saltbush, kangaroo rats, lizards and cactuses are adapted to survive despite scarce water. Some collect and store water; other conserve it; some do both. Many animals move about only at night to escape the heat of the day, leaving the casual observer to underestimate the richness of animal life in the seemingly inhospitable desert.
