Saguaros Reflected in Creek 2864A

Click for greater size and clarity.

Okay, so I changed my mind and decided one more saguaro picture wouldn’t hurt, especially one with such a delightfully delineated diagonal. Although the gigantic cacti classified as Carnegiea gigantea can weigh a couple of tons each because of all the water they absorb from intermittent rainfall, I don’t normally think of them living close to a body of water. That shows how much I know, but it’s one reason I was fascinated (not fasciated) by this slopeful of saguaros that I saw reflected in Sabino Creek on October 2, 2014. (Sabino Creek runs through Sabino Canyon in northeast Tucson.)
