I always enjoy the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden in spring here is a young bud on a prickly pear. I take a tripod and set up as close as possible at a wide open aperture to blur the background. Cactus are hard due to the spines which are a bit random. This is using a 100mm macro lens which is a very good lens creating very sharp images.
