What a view that agave has every day!

What an interesting plant! So many post make me research and that alone makes membership in our group worthwhile. The photos, of course, such as this one are the main drawing card.

Gorgeous JM! It almost doesn't look real.

Sharon said...

I love this photo! The water in the background is a perfect back drop for the lovely blossoms. I took several photos of agave blooms this spring but didn't get one that I really liked.

What a fantastic spot to put down roots! Beautiful!

Great composition today. Alas, I presume that the agave will now die after its blossom has been thrust skyward.

Cool! It almost looks like something from Dr. Seuss.

This is lovely! I don't believe I had ever seen agave blossoms. They make for a great graphic photo!

Prospero said...

They call them Century plants because they thought they only bloomed every 100 years!

Jacob said...

It's what I expect from JM: A beautifully composed, perfectly exposed, tack sharp and very colorful photo!

Damn, you're good!

They look like yellow clouds! We have them here but they never flower (not warm enough) so this is a treat.
