Gorgeous Hedgehog Cactus Flower

Look at the shape of the red and yellow petals of this gorgeous hedgehog cactus flower.

The detail and texture of the green and pinkish red stamen is incredible.

I love it when the natural sunlight backlights the flower and provides a partially translucent image.

I love macro shots! And, I was lucky to find this beauty in my backyard. I am starting to appreciate my back yard so much more since I started this website.

It is Sunday, so we have new travel photos posted on Viva la Voyage.

The colors of this flower are exquisite! Great close-up!
Re: not being able to access my blog. I think you're trying to access one that I set up as a "just in case" my blog didn't get unblocked by the Saudi gov't a couple of months ago. You can access my photo blog at this link:
http://susieofarabia.wordpress.com/
or if you're on Susie's Big Adventure, in the left column under "A Little Bit About Me," there's also a link right there. Sorry for the confusion!
