This is a mandala made with photos of the teddy bear cholla cactus. A lot of people also call it the jumping cholla. I reserve that label for another cholla that I have in my front yard. Some people call all chollas the jumping cactus.
I am not a botonist and don't mind taking a little artistic license to tell a good story. I hope to spark your appreciation of and interes in cacti, and if I inspire you to get into classification and botanical investigation; I will be pleased. If anyone wants to correct me on my designations, please do so.
For more on the teddy bear cholla, we my post on May 21 on my Nightblooming Cards blog.
