Desert plants are very beautiful ... that is when they flower... its to advertise themselves to the bees and the birds.
This Cactii is soon to flower but its lookin decidedly odd atm ;)

Looks like some of Arizona Cactii ! They sure have fantastic flowers when they bloom! Jim

A little lopsided, wouldn't you say? You've done a good job of capturing the reason you don't want to brush up against one of those things.

A flower emerges minutes after my first shot and many more to follow.
The Cactii store a lot of nutrients.

This little Guy is soft NOT sharp prickly;)

Really? He's soft? The only ones I've run into have been the other kind (usually when I'm not watching where I'm walking). I LOVE the flower - so spectacular!
