Nice shot of the prickly pear cactus(I think)...I was told that the tunas(fruit below the flower) are good to eat but they must not be on the variety we have in Galveston...I tried but they are inedible...Anyway, a good capture in an unusual place...TFS

Asi que este es el famoso nopal...por aqui hay unas especies muy parecidas, conocidas como tunas y algunos comen sus frutos. Muy educativa tu foto.

Por aquí también han florecido las tuneras. Flores de bellos tonos que van del amarillo al naranja intenso.
Preciosa planta y hermosos y jugosos frutos.
Un saludo, JL.

A very good capture. Amazing it doesn't have any pricks on it. Here they are full with pricks and bright yellow color flowers. Note is informative. Thanks a lot for sharing.
This is an interesting active POV.
I did a workshop. Not sure if it improved the image?
I was tinking the original was a bit too light.
Thanks for posting along with the informative note.

It's very interesting to read your notes. Are they part of your job?
Concerning the picture: I like it very much because it is between realism and abstraction. It gives a very good impression of that kind of cactus and also has an artistic aspect with those shapes and light spots made by the flowers. From the technical point of view, I think your picture lacks a bit of contrast.
