    They're beautiful, Bobby! The real name is too much of a mouthful so think I'll stick with what you call 'em!

I'll stick with Saguaro Blossoms.:) Excellent light, colors and textures in this beautiful floral!!

Sounds like you are well protected.:) Our oldest son lives on the same street as Obama on what is probably the safest block in the country. Unless the Secret Service members are to busy partying.

Gigantea is right, Bobby, and this closeup emphasizes that! Those blossoms are gorgeous, and your clarity and pov are rock-solid!
Have a great weekend!

Very striking on that gorgeous blue background. Well done Bobby!

I actually had to turn on the a/c yesterday with the humidity and heat. It's going to be a lot cooler today though! Typical spring.

Such a unique look of beauty that most of us will never get a real chance to see. Fortunate for us, we have someone like you who knows how to handle that camera and we get a beautiful look at these gorgeous and fasinating flowers. I also enjoyed your description alot.
Way to go my friend.

Wow, Bobby, this is an excellent close-up of the saguaro flowers! Did you use a ladder?? Most of the saguaros we see passing through Phoenix are too tall to catch this view! How is everything out in the desert? I've been off-line for quite a while (traveling and stuff), but this month's theme brought me back; it's one of my favorites while traveling. We miss going out to our place in Woodland Valley...perhaps this summer, we're hoping!
