    They are so much more beautiful in Southern AZ than they are in Maricopa co. The one I relocated on the outskirts of South Mountain was drab grey tones.

    I think the desert phase blacktails in the Superstitions can look every bit as attractive as the animals in the South East. They aren’t high contrast by any means, but the tones of green, orange, and gold throughout can look beautiful. The first blacktail I ever found was in the Supers, and it was limegreen and white. Beautiful, and I’ve never seen another like it.
