Not an expert either, but I do recall from when I lived in AZ, that after one of the very infrequent rainstorms, everything in the desert would bloom.
Nice use of natural light to get the highlights.

Thanks-this was taken in the Boyce-Thompson Arboretum in Superior, AZ. We must have walked 3 miles that day-this was the only cactus in bloom that we saw. The desert is still pretty green after all the rain in Aug and Sep.
