This morning we were  once again in amongst the saguaro cacti in Organ Pipe N. M.  I first captured the setting full moon behind some saguaro and in the Belt of Venus.

Then I found a wonderful couple of cacti very close to each other that created interesting framing opportunities.

Saguaro cacti are far more photogenic than organ pipe cactus, and they are quite prolific in this park as well.  

Near the Visitor Center we found a blooming saguaro. This was a first for me. The blossoms are usually atop of the tall arms. The telephoto lens was called in to use for the the photograph of the bloom.

  In the afternoon we found some nice flowering cholla and got some of the blooms backlit.

Once again we had mostly clear skies but I did get some nice late light on the mountains in the background.
