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.

Red Barrel Cactus


Found growing along a hiking trail at Silly Mountain, near Apache Junction, Arizona.

There it is, with Man up the trail a bit, waiting for me to catch up.  You can tell this is a nice healthy specimen, about 3 to 4 foot tall.

Neat looking but also very painful if tangled with!

I have never heard of this one or seen one. Fascinating. Almost looks like a wire bundle. Thanks for adding to my education.Myrna
