A really loud buzzing was going on around this prickly pear and at first I was struck by how many plump bees were flying around. But the big surprise was the huge cluster of Figeater Beetles chewing away on one of the prickly pear fruits! WOW! They are iridescent green and just gorgeous!

I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
