Tonight I will just share some pictures that I took early today of some prickly pear cactus blooms. OK, maybe a few words, but not many 🙂
I find the light green stigma surrounded by the white stamen very interesting. In this picture you can also see that pollen has scattered across some of the petals. The ants look like they have been busy.
I did learn today to be a bit more careful while taking pictures of cacti. I had to pull some needles out of my shirt after getting a bit close.
Hmm, now I am thinking of nopales and getting a bit hungry.
Have you ever eaten nopales?
