The fishhook cactus is named for the hook shaped spines, and the flower, a beautiful lavendar color, usually blooms in May in Canyonlands. This is one of my first attempts at macro-photography, and it's success is what prompted me to collect a few more macro gagdets! - Theresa Husarik, photographer.
