Far from being the barren wasteland that many imagine a desert being, the Sonoran hosts a plethora of different lifeforms. A large number of these lifeforms are plants, and what plants are better-adapted to desert life than succulents? This desert is home to approximately 300 different cactus species, ranging in size from the tiny hedgehogs (which may max out at a few inches) to the iconic saguaro, which can exceed 50 feet. The flowers produced by these different species can be found in all manner of colors, shapes, and arrangements. This album will eventually cover a multitude of exquisite examples!
