You are so bad Victor! LOL I am in love with this photo. I so wish I could zoom there to see it in person. Such a perfect setting for such a perfect cactus.

Yes, it glows! Does it say where this was taken? I need to go back and look. Arizona probably. I would love to go on a cactus treasure hunt there.
