Superb photography, enhanced to a great degree by the expert manipulation of the shading mechanism operated by the official shade handler. You may be interested to know that the sticker that punctured my right-hand trigger finger is still lodged there. Keep up the good work.

You’ve captured the drama of the cactus with its soft side exposed. Your cacti photos are spectacular. Just when I thought there was no flower on earth left for you to photograph.

Pretty to look at but do not touch. I love how the plant world is designed to protect its own beauty. A spectacular flower protected by its own army of thorns.
