Fruit of the night

Photo by Ned Harris 9/5/2012

Unlike the Regal Horned Lizard, this fruit of the Night-blooming Cereus (Peniocereus greggii) is not cryptically colored and did jump right out at me. Only one fruit on this hidden-away plant on the Bear Canyon trail, but there is quite a bit of new growth.

Answers to Peggy's Pod Quiz: Pod 1: Foothills Palo Verde (Parkinsonia microphylla); Pods 2: White-thorn Acacia (Acacia constricta); Pod 3: Cat-claw Acacia (Acacia greggii); Pod 4: Blue Palo Verde (Parkinsonia florida) How did you do?
