First of the season

This is the first prickly pear blossom I have seen this year. Not completely open, either. I will keep looking for better examples. But this one's kinda nice anyway. I was glad to find it. It was on a high, fairly open, south-facing hillside. Just where you'd expect it to be.

One of my favorite flowers; the texture is such that they sometimes look like they are sculpted from wax.
Eaten my share of the fruit from them, also.
