Sunrise on 10-10-10...

Beautiful view from Sandy Beach on the East side of the island..

While i was in the area, I climbed the cliffs above Hanauma Bay to get a picture of the bay from the ocean side...

Imagine my surprise when i ran into these blooming cactus! Never ever,lived here my whole life, had I seen these before... they look like flowers from the movie AVATAR...

Mother Nature at her finest!

Succulents and Cacti produce the most beautiful flowers. Those look like some kind of carrion plant. Did they have a bit of an offish oder?
@Firefly: had to google carrion.. Hawaiian name is makapuu.. interesting
