Mammalaria Cactus in bloom

Every year the last week in May into the first week in June, this cactus blooms here at 6800 feet.

Bad Lands - very, very bad - in a good way.

Some photos from the Bisti - De Na Zin Wilderness area outside Farmington, NM.

Trying to do time-lapse from a short sequence of only a few frames - a bit choppy.
