Reflection's Flora and Fauna
A collection of my photos of flora and fauna, and maybe now and then,
something else that catches my attention and just will not let go.
Maybe even with little verbage, which is pretty hard for this gal.

The Grand Saguaro

We are in the land of the Saguaro.  Wikipedia has a page on this cactus here.  I have heard it takes 50 years or more for one of these to start sprouting "arms".  Wikipedia reports this time frame as up to 75 years.

Many holes and ledges are found in the saguaro, pecked out by birds for nesting purposes.

And, they make great silhouettes for sunset photos.
