Sixteen years here and I still go gaga when the cactus bloom in the spring. Last year I got a new book and have gotten a lot of them identified.

#1 no ID here I just call it my favorite!

Pam, how something so thorny can produce such beauty. Hard to pick a favorite as each has it's own special beauty and color. Thanks for sharing these photos, well done.

Nice series Pam. #4 the Claret cup looks like an under water Sea Anemone.

I wish you had some macro shots. Those are some beautiful colors on those flowers.
