Prickly Pear with raindrops

Prickly Pear

Gotta love the Eastern Prickly Pear (Opuntia humifusa). This cactus grows well well into the northeastern U.S. Soon it will be showing large yellow flowers, but only briefly. I hope to capture the flowers in an upcoming One Picture a Day. This cactus has enjoyed a rain shower. Camera was the Nikon D90 with the kit 18-55mm AF-S VR lens. Post-processing in Aperture.
