Watermark


I'm not sure what has caused these stains on this prickly pear, but they look a lot like watermarks on paper.

I like that eye catching red fringe.

I wonder if any one can explain them. They look also like water stains.

They do look like water stains. Are there sprinklers in this area that water the cactus with hard water.

My first thought was a fungus but it would have to stay pretty wet for that to be what it is.

They do, indeed, look like watermarks!
Good catch!

I guess it's some kind of disease, but it looks cool anyway! :-)

I'm not familiar with prickly pears. To me they just look pretty in pink!
