Hello all, a lovely opuntia bloom that I ran across on a hike. The opuntia or prickly pear cacti bloom in early spring and known as Opuntia basilaris, the Beavertail Cactus, is a cactus species found in primarily in the southwest United States.

Hello Karen,
What a pretty cactus bloom you have presented to us. The colors are rich yet natural and you have have captured it perfectly. I still remember the first time I saw a cactus plant growing in the wild, it was in the Badlands and a real thrill for me at the time. Nice shot!!

Bonsoir Karen,
Agréable macro valorisant relativement bien le sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
