I visited friends at the Desert Botanical Garden yesterday and captured this shot of cactus blooms. There are dozens of cactus right inside the entrance in various stages of bloom including some full rings. Worth a visit!

Droid X in Macro mode – no effects!

Retro Cactus

Lots going on so I almost forgot to post an image. Needing a quick photo, I grabbed my DroidX and headed to Javelina Cafe (a fenced in area of my yard that’s filled with yummy Javelina favorites). This cactus was captured using an app called Retro Camera. It doesn’t have as many options as the other camera apps but it’s fun and quick! Having an image processed completely in the camera is so much fun but boy can it drain your battery quickly. Guess I better order a spare 🙂

Prickly Pear Fruit

Prickly Pear are loaded with ripe fruit right now. Here’s a quick DroidX shot using a vintage effect. Ideally I want to capture birds and ground squirrels feasting on the fruit!

Droid Camera

I held out as long as I could but I finally got a smartphone. It’s mostly for internet at campgrounds with no wireless but I thought it might be a decent pocket camera too. I tried Macro mode first and it’s not bad! Here’s a shot of new growth on a baby Saguaro.
