  4. What a fun and beautiful sequence. Where did you take that photo? It somehow doesn't look like the Northwest. Thanks too for your comment on my blog. Barbara

  7. Thank you everyone for liking this prickly guy and its stripy visitor!
    The pictures were taken in Phoenix, Arizona area with Kodak EasyShare Z1275. I also have Olympus SP-565UZ, and the photos, probably, could be better taken with it. But I found out that many of my favorite pictures are actually taken with the above mantioned small Kodak.

  13. Hey, it's wild, and it's a flower. Who would argue with that?

  14. I see the bee. It is smart of you to capture this:- a bee with a sting feeding on a flower from a plant with many stinging needles. Ouch, ouch, ouch...

  15. I think it certainly does qualify! I was going to ask where these were taken, but I see in your comment that it was near Phoenix, which is what I thought. The desert certainly has its own unique wildflowers. I can't remember what these cacti are, but I've seen them in the winter time, but never in bloom--lovely!

  16. I am so glad I asked my husband to stop when I saw this place! And it was not our first stop... It was a stop after a stop, after a stop. But, it worth it. Thank you for your kind comments everyone!

  21. Nice picture Tatyana. The bee is not worried about the prickly thorns because it has sting to match! ~bangchik
