    It has always amazed me how the desert makes use of any and all water it gets, no matter what time of year.
    Nice shots.

    Thanks guys.

    I agree that the way the desert reacts to rain is quite fascinating

    Nice shots. Flowering cactuses always look like some kind of a miracle to me. I like #3 most.
