Wow, great colours, love the red spreading into the yellow from the bottom of the flower, you have shown that beautifully.
May I suggest a bit of a crop from the bottom to take out the out of focus flower (bottom centre) until the eye rests on the in-focus three across your image and the top of the flower in the bottom right fills in the corner nicely.
Thats just being picky though or should I say prickly, lovely image.

I don't think you should have cropped the photo...Even with the one out of focus the photo has better depth and dimensions...Beautiful colors...Another fine photo...With all your fabulous notes and photos, soon you will be able to publish a book on Texas nature :)

Now normally I can't tell what is a cactus and what is not. Your notes on the clear picture certainly are both eye drawing and informative. You must have been born with a shutter release in your hand, not a silver spoon in your mouth. Your descriptions have taken on a more personal touch. Very cool.

Beautiful cactus flowers. Lovely colours. Perfect natural lighting and good exposure of the yellow petals. The OOF flowers adds so much depth to the shot. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

You AMAZE me.
Saw the W/S. Both, top and bottom, could have been removed, possibly. However, it is GREAT as is, too.
It has EXCELLENT clarity.
Love the contrasts in those colours. Have always loved GOLD.
Warm & friendly regards from this "cold" yet "warm" Canada from your grateful friend, Mario.

I've seen many beautiful floral and landscape pictures of Texas and it is indeed quite beautiful down there. Other than the blurred FG flower you have a lovely pic.
