During the mid-day break from guiding, I picked up some lunch to go and drove home. To my surprise, my Pitaya cacti, also known as strawberry cactus, were in full bloom! I knew if I spent time getting out my DSLR camera, I would take too long before getting back to guiding, so I used my iPhone 6+ to take several photos. Here is just one of my favorite images; click on the image to see the complete photo. Each year my Pitayas have a bigger presence in my yard; for several years I’ve been collecting them, with permission, from friends’ ranches.
