Ocotillo buds, Imperial County, CA

Taken in the Southeastern portion of California, not far from Arizona. That's Interstate 8 in the mid-background. If I remember the location correctly, this is near a small town named Ocotillo.

 

Note the shadow of the ocotillo, on the ground. This particular ocotillo was perhaps 6 yds/meters tall. To see an entire plant (not the same one, but similar, and not far away) see here.

 

Much more dramatic at the larger sizes.
