Teddy Bear Cholla Mandala 1


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.
