    Beautiful plant and I like the way you've thrown the background out of focus so the flower stands out.
    Thanks for sharing,

    Great shots, especially like the close up. Having never seen a Mexican BoP it wasn't what I was expecting at all. It's very cool looking though.

    Thanks guys. These are fairly popular across the desert southwest as they take very little water.
