there are two shades of pink and a bright yellow and even peach colored cactus growing here. they are a native to our area and i enjoy their dynamic show of color every year~!~
the bees and other pollinators enjoy them too~!!~
this little guy was about one quarter of an inch long and was perched contentedly on the top of this partially open peach colored blossom just surveying the whole area as if contemplating someday becoming the King.
. . . if the mantids or spiders don't catch him before he grows big enough~!~
in the center of my cactus garden i have a vintage red wheelbarrow planted with "softer" plants. this is a shot i took across the top of the lobelia that grows in there.
