Theme Day: Nature


What could be a better theme for me than "Nature"?  I LOVE nature and spend a lot of time photographing its wonders.  For today's theme I chose one of my favorite natural surprises, the cactus flower.  How can nature produce such spectacular beauty attached to such prickly and unfriendly plants?


I never get tired of them.  Every spring I'm out there photographing as many as I can find.  To me they are part of nature's mysterious ways!

Your "natural" photos are always magnificent! Love these macros, especially the color and the sharpness of the 2nd one.

I love the bright colors. We don't see such a variety of cactus plants here, but we do see a few. I don't recall any as bright as this.
