Photographer's Note

Silhouettes of 'cacti' (I don't know anyone who actually uses the gramatically correct term - everyone says the word 'cactus' for the singular and plural forms).
Specifically, the tall, skinny ones are Saguaros, which only grow - naturally - in about a 100 mile (about 161 km) radius of Tucson. When it rains, the outer pulp of the cactus can expand and absorb up to one ton (a little less than a metric ton) of water. It then keeps this water, and water absorbed from other downpours, for the seasons when we get almost no rain at all.
