Summer sun shining on the cactus flowers

I was walking out in the woods looking for something to do for my assignment and I saw the sun shinging on a group of beautiful cactus flowers. For this shot I actually was lying on the ground holding the camera at an angle. I didn't realize it but when I got done my arm was stinging, I looked and I had accidentally brushed my arm against one of the ones that was above me and had little prickles in my arm

Re: Summer sun shining on the cactus flowers

Ahhhh, the perils of being a real photographer, to do what it takes to get the right angle. Well done, I like the backlight shining thru the flowers.
