Photographer's Note

Today I'll post another picture of my island, Tenerife.
This was taken at the lowest part of the Chinamada ravine, that starts in Punta del Hidalgo at the north of the island. A friend and me climbed this ravine in three hours four years ago.
One of the most typical things in the geography of the Canary Islands (specially in the western ones) are its long and deep ravines. You can climb or go down the ravines and find great examples of endemic plants.

What you see in the front is the so called in the islands Higo Pico, Higo Chumbo or Tuno. The scientific name is the Opuntia ficus-indica, and it's a species of cactus and a long-domesticated crop plant important in agricultural economies throughout arid and semiarid parts of the world. It's fruit (the red part of the plant) has a very sweel taste.

I hope you like the picture
Best Regards
Vνctor
