Ah, the California desert! Flickr user ManualFoci captured this shot of an ocotillo cactus in the foreground at Anza-Borrego Desert State Park in March. (Did you know that Anza-Borrego is California’s largest state park and a critical habitat for bighorn sheep?) Thanks for sharing it through The Nature Conservancy’s Flickr group!
