Wow! Those are knock-your-eyes-out colors. Your pastures must be gorgeous when the prickly pears are in bloom.

Very pretty Linda. Our prickly pear cactus never have these mixed colors.
Sorry I can't help you on the Macro lens. The best thing I have for that is my 18-55 that came with the cameera.
I even done some macro photos last 2 days out in the desert, and I just had my 70-300 with th 1.4x extender. Just had to back away. I was not very near my car where the smaller lens were. Ya make do with whatcha got. I knew those lizards wouldn't wait for me to get to the car & Back. Just had to back away enough to fit in the frame.
I'm not into macro. I don't do Bugs, I got enough of them in my computer. Someone else will have to help you.

W@W LINDA!!! I LOVE CACTUS FLOWERS!! This is a very sweet composition!! I think it's just fine!! I use my honkin' 80-400mm for lots of my 'macros',,it was not a cheap lens though,,you might cruise around on Ebay and find plenty of equipment to chose from,,think this is where we got ours..takes some time to compare,and check sellers feedback,etc..you might find a decent macro lens for your camera for reasonable...sometimes, you can buy affordable close-up filters/diopters [1-3 pcs or more I think]..that you screw onto your lens,,have to read the size diameter on your lens for the proper ones..Now,you have to be careful on some of these,,as quality I have found is an issue..Heck,I've even used a big magnifying lens at times..long as it's not too windy,and you have something to hold it still long enough to snap a picture through..:)) Good luck in your search.Also try canon.usa or something like that to see what they recommend,,but of course,they will try to steer you towards buying expensive pieces..but it might give you an idea of what you can look for elsewhere..like going to buy a car,,always someone trying to sell you something your don't want!! ;) Keep up the great work!!

Thanks so much for your comments, swreader. We do have a few types of cactus in our area, as we are on the edge of the desert southwest. These include barrel and tree cactus, as well as yucca.

There are said to be more varieties of opuntia than any other cactus. I've not seen this mixed red center and yellow outer petals. Keep up your photography, and see what other cactus species you have around Keyes.
