Venus through saguaro cactus
David Jamieson at Cave Creek, Arizona took this shot of the planet Venus – brightest planet visible from Earth – on Sunday (February 8, 2015) with a Olympus E-P3 with a 14-42 mm lens. Thank you, David!
The saguaro cactus in this photo are really special, by the way. They are the largest cactus in the United States. You see them in a lot of old Western movies, but you might not know that saguaros are found in a relatively small area, exclusively in the Sonoran Desert, in southern Arizona and western Sonora, Mexico.
