Some great shots there!  Am I seeing that Ernst Tinaja is dry?  I don't think I have ever seen that before.

Like Al said, tell us more please.
Looks wet to me.


Looks pretty dry to me unless those shadows are water?
temperatures exceed 100 degrees F
minimum 1 gallon water per person/day
no shade, no water

BTW this spike was charging me because his two females ran around on the other side of me. So, I was between them and he wanted to run me off. I stood my ground and got a few shots. I got a adrenalin bust from the event.
