Wow, very unique images, Bob! I like how you have processed these. Who knew cactus had such pretty colorful blooms?

Nice warm looking shots Bob. I can't wait to get home after a month here and get back in the normal swing of things at least until the next vacation.--charliezap

the grass is always greener Susan, you wouldn't enjoy the crystal clear days and 85 degree weather and all of the cactus in bloom.

Lori, I think most people think that the cactus are just sticks with spines on them, but they are actually quite beautiful. Glad you like the photos here. Bob

thanks Heinrich, I think I will not take so many closeup photo macro shots as in #2, I agree that the first image is better to view, gives a better perspective of the plant. I do think roses look better closeup though in most instances. thanks Bob

Hey Charlie, no matter where you are, you are on vacation. You're retired.
