About This Image

Prickly pear cactus bloom. The jagged edges of the petals give it a fragile look.

Hello back, Bubbalinn! Sorry I didn't see your comment until this evening. Thank you so much. These were full of bees and I happened to catch this bloom with no insects at the time I took this. Afternoon shadows made a dark contrast to the lighted areas.

Hi Karen, I recently uploaded some cactus photos and got looking at the cactus photos and found yours :) Beautiful photo of the yellow bloom, I also like how the light gave you the dark background. The insects sure do love these..

Thank you, Don, for your kind feedback. This flower was partially in shade on a bright sunny day, so the background showed as dark.
