Our prickly pear cactus apparently has sap on it, and is attracting several kinds of flying creatures. I’ve taken quite a few photos over the last couple of days.
Today when I came back into the house, and looked closely at this little guy, he appeared to be hung up on a cactus needle! Poor little thing 😢
I grabbed a toothpick, broke it in half, and gently lifted him up off the needle. He flew away, so hopefully he is OK!
“If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.”
~ Francis of Assisi
