Desert Botanical Garden – April 17, 2013

Agave buds

The Desert Botanical Garden is in the Phoenix – Tempe, Arizona area. Josiah and I spent an afternoon walking some of the 140 acre park, and of course taking pictures. This is an agave cactus getting ready to bloom. They get these stalks that grow very vast, and very tall. Then arms, shoots come out and the buds form, then open up. Some agave cactus bloom only once, then die, like century cactus. Shot late April 2012.  Shot with  with the Canon 30D, ISO-100, F4, 1/2000 sec, 200mm.
