I went out today and took some shots of the cactus around the ranch. We have such a bad drought going on that none of them look terribly healthy, but some (see last picture) look better than others. The first picture is a macro shot of a spent cactus bud. It used to have a flower, which you can see numerous shots I took on here or here. The buds are kinda cool too, though.
As always, if you want to see more pictures or these in a larger (much larger) size, just click on the picture to go to my fickr page. Enjoy.
