  6. Dawn, that is so cute! You have such a creative eye. The last one looks like it's clapping at the beautiful sunset.

    I had no idea what the saguaro's looked like after they died, sticks standing straight up. I learned something!


  7. I LOVE cactus and these photos are great! Where ya headed to next?

  8. What a lot of fun! These huge cactus fill me with awe - there is nothing here in the UK that can compare to them. They are very person-like and I LOVE how your pictures bring that out.
