Some folks don’t get along well with cactus — I think it has something to do with all those spines. 🙂

Right now hedgehog cacti are bursting into colour all over the desert. They sit close to the ground so you can easily peak inside the blossoms. Maybe even spot a pollen-covered desert bee.

    1. Sharp eye, Pete … yes, covered in pollen. One of the native bees perhaps (vs an africanized honeybee which also lives here). There’s been so much cross-breeding, however, that I’m not sure who’s who. (P.S. I think your hedgehogs are cuter.) 🙂
