Image Description: Easily the best known desert plant in the world, the cactus is a widely varied and very hearty plant that can hold enough water to get it through some of the longest droughts that the Earth has ever known, allowing them to stay wet and fresh in the midst of even the most ground-baking sunlight. This two-pronged cactus looks as if it is sitting atop a high ridge, giving way to an extended plain that eventually turns into foothills in the distance. There is some other greenery to be seen on the rocky plain itself, but it boasts only the yellowed shade typical of plants working with a limited amount of water.
