Friday Fun: Crazy for Cactus

While I was in California for a writing retreat earlier this month, I went crazy with my camera’s macro lens. What was the special occasion?

Cactus. It was the first time I’d ever seen cactus plants growing in their natural setting.

I was amazed by the diversity of cactus species I encountered, so I thought I’d share some of my photos with you today.

Hope you like them.


  1. I especially love the way the light falls on the first one. Lovely shots.

  2. These are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing. did you happen to show down on some prickly pear? It makes good jelly - and candy.

  3. Thanks for the comments. Michelle, thanks so much for showing me how to use my macro lens. I didn't sample any prickly pear foods, sue. I heard it's great in soup too.
