Three photos of a very old - probably close to 200 years - multi-armed Saguaro Cactus, one of the things that's remarkable about Tucson. The pictured saguaro is the height of a medium-sized tree. The holes in the arms are made by woodpeckers and used for nesting by a variety of birds. There is a second younger (fewer arms) Saguaro in the bottom picture towards the back left.

Hi Louise - Thanks for positive feedback. Saguaros are one of those things its hard to take a bad photo of I think. I see you're from New Zealand. One of those places I dream of visiting!
