Here are 2 close up pictures of the yellow flowers on a Prickly Pear Cactus plant. While the cactus itself it very dangerous if you don’t give it plenty of passing room, the flowers are very delicate.With the way the sun is hitting the flowers in these pictures, the outer petals almost seem transparent.
As you can see, in these plant pictures, the petals on the top flower are pretty thin.
See the thorns on the fruit with the bud? If those get in your skin you have a heck of a time getting them out!
