This week, I’m going to offer a picture for the Sunday challenge over at Jakesprinter – the theme this time is “closeup”. Actually, I’ll post two photos, to give you an idea of scale.
If three tall men stood on each others’ shoulders – well, that would be a very unstable nightmare, now that I think about it. But if you knew a three-man-tall giant, the giant could reach up and pick the flowers off the top of this saguaro.
(Both pictures were taken in the Saguaro National Forest outside Tucson, Arizona, in June of 2005 – June is a good time to see the Sonoran Desert, because it hasn’t turned completely dry yet, and everything in sight is in bloom or starting to fruit.)
