Five Shots: Cacti Are Blooming

With lots of rainfall over the winter, Arizona is experiencing a grand blossoming. I love it when the cacti bloom. The contrast between the prickly texture of the paddles against the soft, yet obscene blossoms make this time of year a treat. Here are some of my favorite shots. Which one do you like best?

1.White Queen Blossom
2. Quite the handful
3. Green Nubs
4. Fuschia and Yellow
5. Yellow Paddle in the Sun
6. Sherbert Tips
7. Pink Tips on Green Paddle
8. Three Ladies
9. Cluster In Front of Gray Skies

I have a camping trip planned next week to the Colorado Rockies. I’m hoping to capture fall colors and crisp shots. In anticipation, I looked back over the year and pulled out my favorite shots of the year so far. Can you help me decide which is the best one?
