Cactus Wren, Boyce-Thompson Arboretum Psych! 6 Comments Jim Robertson 24 January 2016 at 10:35 am 4 years ago Very nice Isabel. You did well not to blow out the reds, they often are. The detail is still there in them. Nice depth of field. Isabel Gibson 24 January 2016 at 10:48 am 4 years ago Jim – High praise indeed. It was over my head, or almost, with only the sky behind. Maybe that helped. Alison 24 January 2016 at 10:44 am 4 years ago Makes me feel warm just to look at your photo! I think I’d like it hanging on my wall of my sewing room these cold January days. Isabel Gibson 24 January 2016 at 10:49 am 4 years ago Alison – Holler if you want a full-res (I might still have it!). Judith 24 January 2016 at 12:20 pm 4 years ago Cactus flowers are so lush, in great contrast to their dry environment – a celebration of life! Beautiful photo. Isabel Gibson 24 January 2016 at 4:29 pm 4 years ago Judith – Thanks! We see very few of the flowers in our winter sojourn. Most arrive after we leave. But I’m pretty sure I don’t want to brave their spring temps just to see more cactuses in bloom! Comments are closed.
