Prickly pear cactus with fruit

My New Year's Eve sketch stop. I just had to look at this more closely before the local birds ate the blossoms. The sun was late so I was a bit confused with the shading but I am so happy I stopped my busy day and enjoyed this spectacular cactus.

"I love this cactus, prickly is right". I fell into something similar to this when I was a little girl. I do not recommend that experience. They are beautiful when in bloom, keep your distance:) I think your should do a series of cards featuring desert flowers.
