Cactus~Cactus Monday 122009




Early yesterday morning, I went for a walk around both the Palm Desert Historical Society garden and the visitor center garden. It was an overcast day, cloudy and gray, so I decided to try out the macro feature on my Canon. Hubby showed me how to use it, and here are a couple of sample photos. Cactus Monday for December 20, 2009. OUCH! Don't touch!

Beautiful example of that cactus. Looks like white stars on it.

I love the spines-they look like some wicked S and M corset thingie. I don't know where my mind is today.

I've always liked cactus. Your macros look great. Since I moved away from California I don't see many cactus or palm trees.

I'm from AK so I don't see many real cactus but I've seen some fake ones and I always thought "they look so fake", but now I realize they actually looked quite real! I had no idea they really had white prickles like that. Very nice photography! HCM!
