Lucinda Walter

Congratulations! Your beautiful work is featured in the Beauty of Arizona group l/f

Jerry Bokowski replied:

Thank you very much, Lucinda. I always appreciate the feature as well as your fav and like, too !

Janet Marie

Congratulations, Jerry for the HOMEPAGE FEATURE in John's Art Group, "Images That Excite You!" This such a stunning shot of a favorite place of ours, Saguaro National Park. There is such a wonderful collection of these beautiful Teddy Bear Cholla Cactus. Named for its furry "cuddly" appearance but is actually a densely spined plant. Both it and chain-fruit cholla are called jumping cholla cactus. The Teddy Bear produces yellow-greenish flowers and Chain-fruit produces small bright pink flowers. What gets dropped on the ground can easily attach to one's shoe (a danger if wearing open shoes, and I would know, not fun). I love the shimmering needles in the Autumn sunlight. Well done! LF FB

Jerry Bokowski replied:

Thank you dearest Janet. Going to the beautiful places in our own “back yard” of Southern Arizona with you is ones of life’s greatest pleasures as we seek wonderful photo ops, sunsets, monsoon storms & clouds, and cacti/ Spring wildflowers! Sharing with you these times and places are the best!

Chance Kafka

Very nice, textural shot and amusing description, Jerry - featured in Tucson and Southern Arizona!

Jerry Bokowski replied:

Thanks for the feature, Chance. I appreciate your visit and comments too!

John M Bailey

Congratulations on your feature in the Fine Art America Group "Images That Excite You!"

Jerry Bokowski replied:

Thank you very much, John. It is an honor!

Elaine Mikkelstrup

Oh wow, that looks deceptively soft. I am guessing it is not. Great capture of this unusual plant l/f

Jerry Bokowski replied:

Elaine. Somehow I missed seeing this wonderful comment by you. A belated thank you for stopping by my gallery. They are deceptively soft looking, hence their name. But are just the opposite. I am glad you like this and I appreciate you choosing this as one of your favorites too.

Barbara Dudzinska

Beautiful capture, great depth of field. Great light and shadow. Fv

Jerry Bokowski replied:

Barbara, Thank you very much! I appreciate your comments!

Deb Halloran

Jerry, What a great capture of this "mean" Teddy Bear Cholla Cactus. Fantastic light and detail...nicely done. v/f

Jerry Bokowski replied:

Thank you so much, Deb. Always a treat hearing from YOU!

Linda  Howes

I like your mean cactus! If I didn't know any better, I would almost think it looks soft. Glad I don't have to worry about them here! Would hate to stumble upon one! Very cool cactus and capture! l/f

Jerry Bokowski replied:

Thanks, Linda. As a kid I had a cousin visit from Nebraska. He though his leather boots would protect him and proceeded to stomp on some until they penetrated through and pierced his foot. I told him, Don't mess with these and he learned the hard way!

Vali Irina Ciobanu

Gorgeous macro! LF

Jerry Bokowski replied:

Vali, Thank you. I always appreciate your visits!

Beverly Canterbury

Great capture and thanks for the info! L/F

Jerry Bokowski replied:

Thanks Beverly! I was 6 years old when my Grandfather first taught me about these!
