Saguaro Cactus are Blooming


Saguaro cactus are blooming right now and apparently that makes the bees very happy.  This particular cactus was so tall I had to use the telephoto to zoom in on the blooms.  I couldn't tell at the time that there were that many bees swarming around.


I liked this shot because all the bees were lined up like incoming airplanes waiting for their turn to land.

Good to see the bees, they are disappearing rapidly unfortunately. Great photos of the blooming cactus.

The flowers bring out the true beauty of the cactus.

Your blooming cacti photos always make me happy to see them, and think how fortunate you are to have them available to you. Yes, the sight of the bees is so very welcome; I am worried about them and wonder what is happening world wide to stop their disappearance?

What great shots and that 2nd shot is perfect. You're right, it does look like the bees are lining up just like big airliners at an airport. Great colors in these photos, too. You be one good photographer!
