Prickly Pear Cacti

Most of the prickly pear cacti finished blooming about
a week ago but I found this late bloomer today.  The
pink edge on the flower means the flower is beginning
to fade.

In a few months the cactus berries will be ready to
eat.  They are lightly sweet and spicy and a nice treat
for animals and birds and humans.
