His colorful wardrobe compliments the catus runway. I wonder who he is wearing. Then again maybe this is nature’s version of Hollywood’s Red Carpet and instead if called Nature’s Green Carpet.

I would love to see this one blown up and framed. Spectacular! I haven’t seen cacti from Cindy Dyer lately.
