My favorite cactus flower picture

This picture that I took several years ago remains one of my favorites. Rarely do you ever see a prickly pear cactus with a bloom this color. It has been my computer background picture for years. Most of the blooms are shades of yellow. Some are shades of orange. Very rarely do you see a red bloom.

Indigo Bunting

Before I retired I never seemed to take time to notice some things like this pretty little bird. I had to go to the bird book and look this one up. I think it is an Indigo Bunting. When everyday seems like "Saturday" things slow down and you have time to notice neat things.

Female Painted Bunting

Here is the female painted bunting. I had to look this one up. These birds seem to come migrating through and are here for about a month.
