Artist's Description

Flower of the Prickly Pear cactus, Opuntia, englemanni
Olympus E-3, f/6.3 @ 1/200, ISO 400

Flower of the Prickly Pear cactus, Opuntia, englemanni, known in south Texas and Mexico as Nopal. Nopalitos, or prickly pear leaves, have long been a staple for natives of Mexico and the southwestern USA and both the leaves and purple fruit are known to have great nutritional benefits including reducing cholesterol and high blood sugar. These plants can grow as high as 2 meters and produce bright yellow flowers throughout the spring.

The Prickly Pear is common from southern USA down to central Mexico.
