An example of the many cactus flowers out front of my home in New Mexico. It is very small but beautifully delicate,filmy against the thorny pads surrounding it.
This prickly pear is used to treat diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity and hangovers! It is also known for its antiviral and antiinflammatory properties.
I used my Canon XTi + 28-300mm lens.

Never travel without a camera – always bringing my camera – feeling ‘naked’ without it!! As old as I’m getting, I still manage to shoot off some pictures.
