Prickly Pear Cactus can be a formidable obstacle for a critter trying to dine on Quail, but Bobwhites with their soft layer of feathers, seem to have no problem scooting under the cactus and out of danger. Although the Cactus is a nuisance it makes up for it with its gorgeous blossoms. The pink flowers are Phlox and the white ones are Thistle Poppies!
