Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece

Another of God's Masterpieces

Another of God’s Masterpieces


  1. It is a real wonder when cacti flower. We used to grow a lot of cacti at home when I was a young child, I guess having southern spanish heritage it was something that was commonplace in the environment, whether lining the streets and the countryside or in people’s homes. But I don’t ever remember seeing any of our house cacti flower. I know some only flower once every 4 years. So I can appreciate how your image represents masterpiece. Great shot. Thanks for sharing 🙂
    Have a great day!

    • Thank you for sharing. This cacti is in the wild so it is even more special. Wonderful to be traveling in the desert and come across such a beauty!

      • Oh yes indeed, even more special then! I wish you well on your travels, and please post more photos 🙂

  2. I’m always surprised by the colours on these plants – always so brilliant

    • Even more special when you are driving in the desert where everything looks dead and in a moment you see a flash of the magenta color. We always have to stop and enjoy their beauty.

  3. Very pretty Nancy. Did you Black and White out the background or is that ground just dry and void of colour? Either way, I like the composition of the flowers standing out.

    • All natural colors. What you see are the thorns of the cacti. This cactus is called a hedgehog cactus. It is amazing driving through the desert and you spy a glimpse of color and when you get close you find this beauty!

  4. I love it when the hedgehog cacti bloom around here. They’re so beautiful and colorful.

    • They really are next to the beavertail they are my second favorite.

  5. I definitely see your point…

    • I love God’s masterpieces the best!

      • Did you get the joke?

      • I do now….hahahahaha

        Sorry I am still at a loss about my friends passing. But you did make me smile. Thanks my friend.

      • 😦
