The deluges are done for a while and there’s a strange bright ball in the sky. With the welcome appearance of that odd, warm orb I did a photo tour of the yard. Amid all the happy flowers who would have thought that I’d find an interesting subject in our big old cactus.
A Field of Thorns
As anyone who’s dabbled in photography knows it takes a lot of shots to come up with something that you’re happy with. I took a whole lotta shots with a macro lens meaning that I was doing all manner of contortions and getting very close to that big cactus when a sobering thought came to mind, “I hope I don’t fall into this thing.”

A few moments after I shot this the ant on the left became a snack for the ladybug.
Holy cactus Batman
One of the cactus leaves has a hole smack in the middle of it and made for some interesting exposures.
Photography just wouldn’t be any fun without some mucking around.
