Thanks, Jens
I'm not sure it really measures up to some of the ones I've seen. Maybe another time.

Or just take another picture of the same plant from a different angle /in a different light/ with a different background and compare to the first one and than post the one you like more.

A nice selction to choose from , great pictures everyone!

@daniel :oops: ( I´m just misusing these discussion topics to sneak in one or two pictures because I can´t post in the contest topic)

@apfire: It´s a Pereskiopsis with a graft :wink: , obviously you didn´t graft it yourself?- Maybe the one who did will know which species was grafted..

@snowfella : might be a good idea , to get a makro lens , you do have great cati to shoot with it.

I did the graft but did not remember what this is.
I am just looking for the defining statement to put here. Follow this link to see my other cacti.
