Day 113 – April 22, 2012

It’s that time of year.  The cacti are in bloom.  I couldn’t reach the saguaro blooms, so I decided to take a photo of the prickly pear in bloom.  Even though the desert is usually just brown and tan and boring most of the time, every now and then it can be beautiful.

  1. The prickly pears have been flowering in Austin for a week now. I always look forward to their coming because they offer so many details to photograph, including the insects attracted to them.

    • Yeah they just started opening their blooms a few days ago. I tried to take a macro shot of that little bug on the flower, but I was getting to close to the needles and he kept moving around and I didn’t want to end my daily picture needing first aid. haha

  2. This IS beautiful Victoria… thanks for sharing!
