Triangle cactus

Looking for images to capture, my friend and I walked across many miles of sand dunes of the coastal municipality Alvardo Veracruz. We were very surprised to see a cactus of acanthocereus tetragonus species, which are endemic to the American continent. The cactus had ripe fruits, that were ready to be eaten by insects as well as other animals. Inside one of the fruits we found a wasp buzzing and preparing itself for breakfast that was provided by Mother Nature.
