The Bounty Continues

I seem to write endless posts about the majestic Saguaros but they are such magnificent desert monuments it would be hard not to. I posted recently about this years abundant crop of Saguaro flowers which provide food to a vast array of insects, birds and mammals.

Now the flowers have withered away and the equally precious fruits provide more sustenance to the desert inhabitants.

The bulging pods burst open to reveal their luscious red interior in their star shaped splendour.

And the harvest from the mighty Saguaro continues to sustain many through the harsh desert summer.
