More totem pole cactus pics

But no flowers yet!!

In these top 2 shots I was trying to capture the little buds going down the cactus. They only go halfway down. I guess the lower part is too old for flowers.

Here's the largest bud, viewed from below. The original aphid left a few babies behind.

Ants have been busy tending the aphids and monitoring the growth of all the buds.

  1. This is a very cool cactus! I love how you found the littlest of bugs to photgraph!!!


Reluctantly, I have reinstated the word verification for all comments on this blog. I don't like it any more than you do, but the rate of breakthrough spam was even more annoying. Thanks for understanding.
