Striped Blooms

This barrel cactus or Ferocactus has beautiful striped blooms that are very attractive to bees as you can see in this photo.



The smaller photo is a close up of the inside of the blossom.


I am away for a few days so I won’t be able to comment regularly.

These are terrific shots. Some people would not stay so close to a flying bee to get those shots.
