Endangered Species - Peyote Cactus
I found a pile of peyote cactus growing wild in the brush country of South Texas. I photographed several specimens and found one that was un-earth and growing side-ways. Very resilient plants, from a completely uneducated observation, but to survive with a lot of it's root system exposed....tough plants.
Classified an endangered species here in Texas, left them undisturbed as found.
I live in the western region of the Edwards Plateau, deep in the Texas Hill Country. I'm an avid outdoorsman spending a large portion of my time "out there" roaming the wide open spaces. Much of my photography is simply an extension of a very active outdoor lifestyle.
The challenges posed with closing the distance, pursuing wildlife photography, is an absolute hoot for me! The experience out there alone is everything to me. If I capture pixels along the way , it's icing on the cake.
