[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Most time of the year, this Echinocereus englemannii cactus look like a clump of needles and spines that you wouldn't want to touch. It survives that way trough the heat of the Sonoran Desert. For two or three early springtime weeks, the plant it's showing its beauty: the big purple flowers that atract the pollinators (bees, bats, insects) and the nature lovers.

This Echinocereus englemannii cactus looks very beautiful as the dark red is a little difficult to bring in correct colour but here I find this perfect..
