Cactus Bud

I hope you enjoy this photo of a gorgeous cactus flower and buds.

I tried to capture the colors and texture with my macro lens and I like how this photo turned out.

I am so lucky that this past month in Arizona we have had so many wonderful cactus blooms.

This week, I am doing a macro photo week on my site so I hope you enjoy these macros! Enlarge them for more details and color.

Check out photos of the Hotel Del in Coronado, California at Viva la Voyage!

Cacti produce wonderful blossoms at the right time of year. The colour of this bed is vivid and so clear!

This last prickly pear pic is so beautifully composed - totally satisfying. Corfu's (Greece)PPs are really boring by comparison. I am so glad to have happened upon you Julie, and to find such gorgeous photos.
