About This Image

This is a close view of what I think is a prickly pear cactus with yellow blooms. Most of the prickly pear blooms are a purple color. There are though these yellows ones that are not rare but they are far and few between. I found this one about a hundred yards from my house.

Hi Alex and Jas, Thanks again for your really nice comments, I really appreciate them.. I like the colors too Jas, they change with age. I think your right Alex, LOL It would be like skinning a porcupine.. I have never tried eating them but I think you can if your really hungry and thirsty. They even come with hundreds of tooth picks.

Lovely shot of the cactus blooms Alan! The shape of the petals look a bit prickly and I love the pink tips to the petals too. :)

Hi Mary, Thanks so much for your wonderful thoughts. They do look fragile but they are pretty tough. The tips of the petals will poke you if you touch them just right. I'm glad you liked my photo.
