Orchid and Flower Photography and Talks by Ron Parsons

Ball and Barrel Cacti

The cactus family occurs throughout the Americas, and is very popular horticulturally. One of the most popular groups, although not a natural one, includes the ball and barrel cacti. People love the spherical shapes of Mammillarias, Parodias, Echinocereus, Rebutias, etc. because of their beautiful symmetry, spination and flowers. Some pictures were shot in habitat but most were photographed in collections.
