No matter how many flower pictures I take, I cannot resist taking more when I see another beautiful specimen. I am amazed at the variety of colors in Prickly Pear flowers. I have seen a huge variation in color on the same plant. The flowers also change colors during the day and over the time they are open. If you are wondering, the season is from the middle of May into June in the lower deserts, however some plants have been known to flower both earlier and later.
