Desert Walk



Saguaro Blooms - Look close and you can see two bumblebees.


 Prickly Pear Blooms - Did you know?


Buds make great jam if you can get the stickers off.



Little dog meets havelena.

  5. Love these shots! And, I love prickly pear jam - it's so yummy!! Seems we're 'neighbors' - I'm down in Arrowhead Ranch - so when I saw the cactus blossoms, I felt right at home! Great macros!!

  6. Hi Lisa,
    Beautiful shots! I love prickly pear, when I lived in Texas we would take the pears and shinge the hairy needles off peel and eat so sweet and delicious.

  10. Oh, what lovely shots! This environment is so different from ours here in New England, and so it's awesome seeing them!
