Arizona Cactus

Insects hover over cactus blossoms atop a saguaro cactus Friday, June 18, 2010 in Cave Creek, Ariz. The saguaro's cactus blossom, Arizona's official state flower, was designated the official territorial flower in 1901 and later confirmed as the state flower in 1931. The saguaro is the largest cactus in America. (AP Photo/Matt York)
