Greetings and welcome to my blog, I am currently redesigning the site so some of my pictures are unfortunately missing because I had to close my sellers account that I had with the Smugmug site because as a free lance photographer I just couldn't afford it.
Once again I apologize for the bareness of my blog and will be working on it continually until I get it restored.
Thank you for your patience! -Megan

Pink Hedgehog Cactus blossom

This is a photo of a beautiful cactus flower that I found this week out in our pasture.
It is a species of hedgehog cactus and is in the Echinocereus family.  I am not sure of the actually speices of this cactus because there are so many varieties and very few are well documented.  I created many new products on my Zazzle site today that feature this photo, Please feel free to check them out.  
Many other new products coming soon so please check back!
Echinocereus is a genus of ribbed, usually small to medium-sized cylindrical cacti, comprising about 70 species from the southern United States and Mexico in very sunny rocky places. Usually the flowers are large and the fruit edible.
The name comes from the Ancient Greek χνος (echinos), meaning "hedgehog," and the Latin cereus meaning "candle."
