Here's a little something to warm up your day. This year was a banner year for prickly pears. Truly, I've never seen so many pears on the cactus in our yard. They are such an intense purple when they are ripe. But you have to get pictures and appreciate them quickly before the deer enjoy them as an end of summer treat. I really liked the wavy flow of cactus patties and pears in this image. Here's a few progress shots. I really need to set a timer so I take photos more often during the process.
