Blooms of Blue Agave

Here is a photo of the bloom on the blue agave stalk.

Yesterday you saw the very tall center of the blue agave that has grown over 20 feet in height.

The clusters at the end of each branch that you saw in yesterday's photo consists of these blooms you can see in today's photo.

This photo was taken with the last rays of sunlight, and while I was standing on a tall ladder.

Check out our travel photos of going up and down the largest pyramid at Chichen Itza at Viva la Voyage!

The lighting is excellent. The background sets everything else off beautifully.
